Just got home-read your short Sun letter. Sometimes it is a little hard to think of things to write about and some days one hardly feels like writing because of the scarcity of news. Just reminds me of what it might be like to be in jail only I guess we have a little more liberty.
We have another air raid warning tomorrow nite. So that means another night at the base. That’s a ‘lovely” duty. Just go there and sit and listen to the whistles blow. I’d like to know what they sound like down here once.
There is a fellow here now in the room Dorothy stayed in. The Dr. that was going to take it you remember was transferred and she hasn’t rented it until yesterday. Had plenty of chances but you know here-only the best.
I’m going after leave again tomorrow and this time I’m going to get it–maybe-at least I’m going to put up some pretty good arguments. That is If if I don’t get orders before that.
Got paid today-still had about $20⁰⁰ left
(page 2) from time before. Just about enough for the ticket home, but I haven’t gotten my laundry yet. This makes 16 days and believe me I’m getting down very low. I’ll almost have to get it before I can come home.
Got a letter from Clay City today. Things seem to be going as usual there.
Well, I’ll either write or be pretty definitely on the way home tomorrow eve. That is I’ll know pretty definitely that I’ll have a leave by then-
Well, it would appear that my grandfather did get the leave he desired. This is the last letter I have from him until July 30th, just over two weeks later than today’s letter. His trip home didn’t turn out quite the way he expected though. Stay tuned for some interesting twists and surprises!
