My Darling Mark –
Hello Sweetheart ! !
No letter today! Maybe you didn’t have time to write or maybe the mail is just messed up. I’m not doing anything so I just as well write.
Today we had another lecture on “malaria” & precautions against it. It’s a hell of a disease to get! We had some bayonet drill too & an hour of exercises.
I’ve got to write Cec tonite – it was too late after I wrote to you last nite honey.
I think about you too much when I write. Maybe not too much!
I’ve got to write to Sis, too.
I’ll bet you’re pretty busy this week honey, huh?
There’s a rumor going around that we get off Fri. noon till Monday morning, but I won’t believe it till we’re off.
Well, honey I’ll cut this off now. I miss you honey – I love you!!
