Well what do you know, Sis? How has the world been treating you lately? I hope not too rough. I haven't heard from you for about a week but thought I'd write you a few lines tonight.
Well one more month has passed and that means we are one month closer to getting home once more. That will really be the day. Its hard to realize just what that day will be like.
I hope Gwen will be able to be in the states by that time. She is looking forward very anxiously to meeting the family and setting up a home for me in the states.
It has been another beautiful fall day today, rather chilly though. I dread to think of winter over here because I'm certain they are long and drawn out.
I got a letter from Gwen today and she is feeling fine. She asked me to send you her love. I'm enclosing a replica of my insignia and a little card I think you will get a little laugh from.
I thought it was rather cute. I sent one to Souil & Harriet & one to Gwen. I'm going to enclose one in my next letter to Dad & Bernard.
Gee it is a beautiful night tonight. The moon is very brilliant.
Well, Sis, I guess I'll close for now and hope to hear from you soon again. Say, Sis, if you can find anymore of those good salted nuts, I'd like to have some more.
Well I'll say goodnight for now.
Take care of yourself.
Loads of Love from
Gwen and Me,
