Dear Mom, Dad, and Paulie,

Last nite I hoofed it down to the Red Cross to see Ronald Colman in “Kismet.” I took it very easy and rested 3 or 4 times during the journey. Nowadays the major just sticks his head in the door and asks if I feel all right. Upon hearing a positive reply, he mumbles something to the effecct of “that’s good,” and scoots out again.

I’m way behind on my correspondence not having answered a letter to any relative for ages.

This morning we christened my deck of cards, by playing a game of casino and another of 500 rummy. I won the first in a rout but lost the second.

I received a V-mail from Non today and, oh yes, Annette says that Jack is in New Guinea. When did he go overseas?

The Red Cross worker hasn’t come around lately so I haven’t reserved you a room yet. She’ll probably come today.

Today is pay day. If I don’t go down to get paid, I’ll get it either today or tomorrow in the ward. Two months pay too!!

That’s all now,

Love,
Bru
