Dear Folks,

Just a note. It is [al]most time to go to work.

Not much of news. Marjorie & I went to town Thursday. I got my stripes [sewed] on and Marjorie got a haircut. Then we ate at the New Yorker & went to a show. “Chip off the Old Block.” We found we’d both seen it, but it was clever enough for us both to like it even better a second time. Last night we mowed & cut the lawn around the barracks. It was very natural to be using a lawn mower again and rather good. The lawn is about like ours at camp! For roughness, however.

I got my Date Dress yesterday, an 18 ½ fits perfectly except for length. It’s swell.

Am going to town tonight with Kerner & Marjorie for dinner & show.

Tomorrow afternoon & evening our detachment is having a picnic at a country estate about ten miles from Macon, private swimming pool. It sounds fun. I’m looking forward to it.

Will write again Monday if possible.

Love to all


P.S. Am enclosing a set of the stripes I’m wearing now.
