Dear Ida & Patty

I received your letter and was very happy to hear from you. It seemed good to read the letter, it was just like talking to you. In fact, I cried just like I have been doing ever since we hit this place. Iíll snap out of it soon. They tell us to forget about home and think of our duties but they can go to hell.

I didnít call you Monday because we didnít have much time. So we decided to have one call and then have that party tell the rest. I guess Betty Leets made about 12 calls.

I want to tell you where weíre located. The station is located on the east shore of Seneca Lake, fourteen miles south of Geneva, N.Y. O.K.

I donít have to tell you how much I miss you and Patty. Iím counting the minutes and seconds until the day I get out of here.

We had General inspection today and boy did we have to have everything spic & span.

Be a good wife and everything will come out all right.

Love from Daddy

P.S. I got my short haircut.
