Navy 60 San Fran
I’ve been running around this A.M. trying and finally getting an officer started on his way back to the States due to an eye ulcer. I at least saw him leave our place but don’t know what the big Drs. will say further back the line. The only mistake I made was not making him sick enough too that he would have had to have medical attention on his way.
[page 2] All this running around has slowed down my garden making but maybe I can get started this P.M.
I got a litter from Rev. McCloud last Sunday. It was type written a but not signed. His return address on the outside of the envelope gave me the identity.
Wasn’t so lucky with the wash yesterday for it rained just about the time it was right for ironing – I got in all but two towels and a pair of pants and have them hanging around inside.
[page 3] Just got word that there are two boys in sick bay to see so I’ll have to cut things short – They aren’t very sick from the word I got so maybe I won’t have to hurry to much. If some of these fellows had to pay for every call I’m sure I wouldn’t be nearly so busy. Or I’d be making a high salary.
Well, guess I’d better see what the score is –
Lots of Love

….so many stories that we’ll never know more about. Who was the Rev. McCloud? How did things turn out for the guy with the eye ulcer? I’m going to guess that was a tropical disease.
Ha ha: “If some of these fellows had to pay for every call I’m sure I wouldn’t be nearly so busy. Or I’d be making a high salary.” 🙂
