Dear Mom & Dad,
Just another short note tonite. As usual theres not much to say for I haven’t been doing anything.
Not even any mail to answer. Nobody has gotten any again, for the last three days. That always makes the troops happy.
Their whole family was there today. That is their immediate family. Her brother is home on leave. He’s getting his discharge in a couple of days I guess. He’s been in the Belgium Army a little less than a year. It was Toni’s mothers birthday today so I got her a pretty potted plant. She’s quite woman. One of those that can’t do enough for you.
Spent most of my pass around the house there doing a lot of nothing & sleeping till about 10:30 or 11:00 in the morning.
Next Evening: See if I can’t get this finished tonite. I got listening to a play over the radio last nite & forgot to finish what I’d started.
Spent another busy day today doing nothing. Took an hr. of link & thats about all.
Finally got a little mail today. Two letters from the gal in London but not a darn thing from the states.
Guess I’ll have to go back to flying tomorrow. Am scheduled as 1st pilot on a camera mission. Don’t guess I’ve flown for over a week now. About 9 days I think.
I see by the paper if I was back in the states I wouldn’t have too much trouble getting a discharge. Seems as though the air corps is getting rid of pilots with 44 or more points.
Think I’ll sign off. Should write to Little Rock & the gal in London. Nite
Lots of love,
