Dear Mother,

Just a little late again this eve but I just got in – I’ve been on the sea all day and my face burns like fire and I’m dry as a fish. In that boiling hot sun for 5-6 hours one really gets hot. We weren’t fishing either.

Got 3 letters from you today – one had the picture of you and D. That was Mar Jan 24. The other two were earlier. Also got one letter from Clarence Y and one from Ira Dixon but

[page 2] those I will not answer until I get some stationery. You probably wonder why I didn’t use that you sent. Well I could only bring a minimum amount of stuff. That is the reason all my clothes etc are still in Noumea. I suppose there is lots of guessing etc. but I can’t even hint. We are all fine but at times things are a little exciting if you get what I mean but one gets used to things like that –

The pictures were fine thanks lots. I left all the others in Noumea.

Lots of Love
Daddy

P.S. Don’t worry about us.

    Oy, before the days of sunscreen. 😦 “Just a little late again this eve but I just got in – I’ve been on the sea all day and my face burns like fire and I’m dry as a fish.”

    He’s gotta be kidding: “P.S. Don’t worry about us.”
