Dear Folks,

We arrived here in the afternoon and were shown to our ward. They are single floored wooden buildings with 34 beds in them. Our ward, a convalescent ward, has only 9 fellows in it. The whole morning is spent cleaning up as there are regular inspections daily. No one is allowed out of the ward until 1:00PM (except for meals) and there is only a PX and Red Cross Building to go to. No passes to go to town whatsoever. Personally I don’t think I’ll stay here too long, not more than a week, and will go to the convalescent center at North Camp-which is to the Station Hospital as Waco is to McCloskey.

I’ve seen 5 other fellows from McCloskey who came here about 2 weeks ago. Others went to North Camp.

We saw a soldier band tonite at the Red Cross.-pretty good.
Well that’s all,
Love, Bru
