Sept. 19, 1942
We have been invited to a band concert and boxing match at a neighboring camp, so I’m writing a few lines before that. Not much change in the day’s routine. Went into town again today for medical purposes. Don’t get the idea that it is like the young fellow from Goodland who had to make a trip for medical supplies.
Have been having very agreeable weather. The sun was very hot today but there was a fine breeze most of the time and this eve it is really cool again.
As yet we have no mail so don’t know what is going on, but all the fellows are in the same boat except the one I mentioned in the letter yesterday.
[page 2] everybody hopes each day will bring mail but that doesn’t seem to be any good. Once in a while we see a newspaper from surrounding territory but for the most part they are generally several days old. Most of the fellows now I think are more interested in home news than in war news.
This of course is Sat. night but it seems the same as any other night. In other words one day is just like any other. Don’t even reserve Sat. night as bath night anymore.
Sun A.M. bright and warm. Church isn’t until this Eve sometime. The Chaplin has to go to some other place
[page 3] this A.M.
It’s funny to think of the time difference between here and home can’t tell you how much it is but several times each day I calculate the difference and wonder what is going on then at that time.
I’m going to write both the boys a V-letter this P.M. so you can check on the time it takes them to get there.
Probably by the time you get this you will be at the hospital or very near there so we hope everything is OK.
