Dear Mom & Dad,
Another short line tonite, the last from this place. We’re moving on to basic the first thing tomorrow.
Thanks for that swell Valentine, I’m certainly sorry now I didn’t get one for you. I thought of it many times but never when I was where I could do any good about it.
I did get to St. Louis. Spent Wed. nite & Thurs. there. They should give that place back to the Indians, I didn’t like it. I & another guy hitch-hiked up both ways. I wrote that on the magazine I sent you today.
I sent you both the 44-F & 44-E Flight line magazine. My diploma for finishing primary is in the 44-E one. I hope it made them a little more interesting by my putting remarks in them. I thought it would help to clear up certain things.
No, I haven’t gotten myself an album. I doubt if I ever catch up to Pete again & I haven’t heard a word from him. I’ve even lost track of Dick Cogswell again.
