Howdy Sis! What's new? Anything particular? I received the package you mailed for Gwen in October. The two slips. They were very pretty. Thanks a lot I know Gwen will love them. What am I thanking you for, they aren't for me but for mine. She is such a sweet and loveable person.
Well it won't be much longer now. Gwen is anxiously looking forward to 8th of Feb. I haven't heard from Gwen for sometime now so I can't give you much news from her. The mail is all tied up someplace but it should break soon.

Good evening! I didn't get around to finishing that letter so thought I'd scratch you off my list first.
Well, today I finally received a letter from Gwen. In fact, two letters. One dated the 4th & one the 5th of January. Land knows where the rest of them are. The one before that I received was 17th of December.
Gwen is still feeling fine. She has been one lucky girl. I guess you are an Auntie by this time. How does it feel?
Well things were a little busier in the office today. I hope they pick up once more. Say, it looks like the Russians are doing a rather good job now days. More power to them. I'd like to see them go straight to Berlin.
Gwen is getting all her papers straightened out once more so that she`ll be able to leave whenever the time presents itself. I know she'll like the U.S. much better than England.
Well, Sis, I guess I'll close for now and hope to hear from you again soon. Take it easy and good luck on those exams. So long for now.
Loads of Love from
Gwen and myself
P.S. I finally got Mothers package with the bracelet in it. It is very nice.
