Just finished my morning chores and trying to settle down to writing.
Yesterday out of a clear sky from some source I got a letter from Dr. Joe Roberts and from his address I don’t believe he is very far from me but that is more or less a guess but I think I’m correct – I sure wish we could get together for a visit which is not impossible if my guessing is correct. The above seems to be
[page 2] a little mixed up but maybe you can get it straight.
Just by way of repeat I’ve sent two uniform check – one for 150 & one for 100 and later a check for 32.60 for you travel. All were in separate letters and mailed about one wk apart. When you get them give me the dope in several letters at intervals.
Went shelling again yesterday and had pretty good success but not as good as before but we didn’t stay as long. These are a little more stinky than
[page 3] those we had in Noumea because the live animal is there and has to be gotten out.
This being Sunday I’ll have to write the folks to keep up my weekly schedule. Then too I’ll have to drop Dr. J. a letter and compare notes but censorship is just as strict between here and there as it is between here and you.
Well, there are rumors of mail – hope they aren’t false.
