Thanks a lot for the letter and all the latest developments at NAS. So Moher finally received his orders. How does he like his new station or have you heard? You know Mary the world is small at that. Remember in your letter you said a pay clerk Campbell had been transferred to the west coast well he is assigned to our ship, as a matter of fact he is to be in charge of supply and I work right with him. Can you lic that. So far he seems ok-likes to talk about himself quite a lot but seems much easier to get along with than the usual type. How was he liked out at NAS?
Not much news here, tho we are quite busy and scheduled to go into commission Feb 14 at that I am kind of anxious to get aboard and show off. They have issued us all both hot & cold weather gear- so we are all guessing where we are bound for. If you get transferred you should ask for duty out this way- I am quite sure you would like it.
Glad to hear you are getting on OK with GRB and thanks for saying you miss me there. Needless to say -I miss my daily chats with you all-we did have our fun at that. Say hello to Edwards for me please.
Will have to shove off for this time and catch the train back to Oakland if I want to get any sleep tonight.
Drop me a line soon. Will you please Mary?
