Neither of my two recent letters have been intended to hurt you or Dad in any way. As you well know, I've always been a very poor hand to express myself on paper. Many things have an entirely different sound when spoken. I do want you & Dad both to know & believe me when I say that I deeply appreciate any & all efforts that you have made to aid & assist me in the many jams I've gotten myself into.
As I've said however, there is nothing that you could do in this case. I am sure and you would only cause more embarrassment for yourselves, there's been too much of that over me in the past. I have no information as yet as to what action is to be taken but will keep in touch with you.
If it is not too much trouble you might when you have time, put any of my clothes that are there into a box & express them to Souil at home, so all of my things will be together once more.
Send them C.O.D. There's no rush about that.
I'll say good night & thanks for everything.
