Good evening. How are things these days with you? So you passed your SK1c ratings exam. Good for you, kid. Now all you have to wait for is an opening.
I have received several letters from you in the last couple of days but have not had a chance to answer them yet. I'm certainly glad you received the perfume I sent you. Its only a small bottle but I thought you'd like it. It'l make you smell real sweet for Henri. Save it until Henri comes home. What makes you think he'll be coming home soon?
I had more news regarding Jane and child yesterday. It is very nice that things went so nicely. You said you bet Maj. Kogetad was in that bunch returning to the States. No. He is now LT. Col. & much much too big to be doing such a menial task as censoring letters. Ha! ha! I could be court martialed for what I think about him. Yes, Mary I did receive the sweater you sent me.
Gwen will be getting over just as soon as she feels like both are capable of that long trip and I do mean long. I imagine sometime in May. I hope so anyhow. It will be much easier for her after she gets over there.
We have been very busy in the last week and I haven't had much time to write anyone. I'll try to catch up with my correspondence now. I got a couple letters from Gwen yesterday. The last was dated 29th Jan and she was feeling tops. I hope Gwen gets off as easily as Jane did.
Well, Sis, I'll close for now as there is not much news right now. Hope to hear from you soon again. I should be getting word from Gwen any day now.
Lots of Love from
Gwen and me,
