Dear Mother,

Another Sunday morning rolls around and I can’t see any difference in this one and numerous ones that have passed before – Just hot and damp.

I wrote Boonie and Bob Hufty yesterday and there was a little drip in the tent and both got wet but I think they will dry by mail time. However wet seems to predominate around here. There was a spot just above my face

[page 2] in the tent and on numerous occasions I was awakened by a drip drip in my face. The only thing to do was to get up and move – Yesterday I had a very bright idea. I chewed up several cakes of gum and repaired the said hole – and after a little downpour last night my repair job was perfect.

Just got a letter from Mom with lettuce, radish, turnip and carrots seeds. So my gardening will soon start. Seems as if I get letters from everyone but

[page 3] you. Her letter was dated May 8. And was an air mail with 12 cents postage. Anyway I’ll be in the garden business before very long. However the crabs and other vermine might beat me to the garden

There is still a possibility that more mail will arrive. Usually the v-mails are the last to be delivered.

Well, I must write the folks so solong.
Love Daddy

    Very clever!! “Yesterday I had a very bright idea. I chewed up several cakes of gum and repaired the said hole – and after a little downpour last night my repair job was perfect.”

    Everybody was gardening!
