Dear Mother,

This will have to be rather short and rapid – since I’ve been out a little late and it’s raining and getting dark rapidly. While we were out – went swimming gathered some limes and saw some orange trees but no luck in getting oranges. The rain has made the roads very muddy and it makes a jeep sort puff to come thru but we haven’t been stuck yet.

We were able to get Fibber & Molly last night. It was the first time I had heard them. The program was the inspection of the

[page 2] milk supply – I just wonder if you heard that one. We also got the news and some scuttle butt from Japan. We like their tall tales.

I’ve been told lately that our mail no longer goes by air and I wonder if that is true – if so no use to spend the extra but I’ll keep writing air mail as long as I have stamps and until I hear from you on the subject.

Well, It’s almost dark so must say –
Love Daddy.
