Dear Folks,

As you see I didn’t get around to write last night after all. I was so tired I went to bed at 7.30 and didn’t get up again as I expected to do.

I can’t even reme[m]ber when I wrote before but it must have been a long time ago. I don’t intend to let that happen and I’ll try to do better in the future. The room has been so cold even with the heater that it is difficult to do anything in it except go to bed and even then it is too cold to sleep. It is warmer today and I hope that cold spell has finally broken. I didn’t do much last week except make out duty rosters and go to the movies once or twice. I don’t know where the evenings went to.

Marjorie and I went to Perry Sat evening and stayed until Sunday evening and slept practically all the time. I read only one small book!! Tonight I’m going to the Little Theater Play “Junior Miss”. I like the Little Theater here. They have very good casts usually. Marj and I have written to Atlanta for reservations for Sat this week. We are having Sat P.M. off and expect to get there in time for the evening performance of Strauss “The Gypsy Baron” played by the New York Opera Company. We’ve written for tickets and hope that everything will go off according to plan.

Sis, I’m shopping tonight ofr[for] something for Bobby, and am taking your list in town to see what I can find.

Dad, Do you think it was nice to say I couldn’t count to four. I don’t wonder. It certainly was simple enough. I haven’t had ambition enough to do another lesson. I got the first one back yesterday and had only 2 errors.

We are working so hard here in the office I’m rather exhausted by night and don’t have much urge to study or even read anymore. It will let up again soon I hope.

We have a new Commanding General on the post maybe he’ll lift that 100 mile limit so this spring we can go to Florida again on a three day pass!!

I had a nice letter from Kay Stewart the other day. Was nice to hear from her. Her family is well. And her Dad seems to be getting along fine.

Must stop now and go to dinner
