11.17.1942 Letter

Dear Willard and Grace:

I received both the neck piece and the soap powder. I am wearing the one and washed my undies tonight with the other. Thanks.

Yes, I saw Don and showed him about the Fort here. We took in a couple of shows together. It was really cold while he was here. I got him a phone where he could call home without having to sand in line while here. I think he sort of liked it up here, but if you haven’t already heard from him your next word from him will probably be from Alabama. He’s with a Medical Detachment.

Well, I’ve got my Christmas furlough coming up next month from the 12 to 16. Everybody gets one, but they’re spread out from the end of November to the middle of January. So we take them when we can get them.

I took in the picture “Forest Rangers” the other night in technicolor. I thought it was a pretty good picture. It featured Fred MacMurray, Paulette Goddard (woo-woo) and Susan Hayword (woooo).

Well it sort of looks as though I have this addressed to Willard and Grace and will send it to Helen and Wilson and since yo live so close together now, you can pass it between you.
