I received three letters from you yesterday dated March
21st, 26th and 29th.
I probably won't receive any for another few days and then about three
or four more.
Yes, I took that bottle of Four Roses. I took it when I was home on
leave from Carlsbad and carried it with me to Fresno. Don't worry about my
drinking over here. I've lost my capacity for liquor because I haven't had
any and then I'm not to sure of the local product. I think I can wait
until I get home.
I wish I could be home for Passover because there are a few things I
I miss those sponge cakes and fried matzoh and about 1000 other things
too numerous to mention. This is going to be the longest stretch that I
was ever away from home. I believe I left home August 9th and It will be
close to eighteen months before I see you again. That's a long time in any
man's language but especially for me since I was hardly ever away from
I'm allowed to say that I've visited Manila which gives you a rough
idea of where I am. I can't pinpoint myself so you'll have to be satisfied
with that information. So far I've only received that one package from
you. When I received it I thought the rest would follow soon but so far I
haven't seen hide nor hair of any of them. I wish they'd hurry up and
arrive because I have nothing to read. I'll be busy the next few days
because we're having the natives build our tent. I'll be the only one here
tomorrow so I'm going to oversee the job.
That's about all for now so I'll say s'long.
My regards to all
