11 Months Ago (Roscoe)

Letter transcription:

Lieut. R.S. Yegerlehner
July 8, 1943

Dear Mother,

Again we have another month behind since this is the 8th and we left Moffitt Field way back 11 months ago. Maybe that means something, maybe it doesn’t – we don’t know.

Your letter posted July [sic] 18 came yesterday and it answered questions which I asked about that loan and the Ins. policy payment so you can skip the answer I asked for a few days ago. You gained a few dollars in that deal because the entire

[page 2] amount of the loan was around 250 and the money I sent home was around 280. I hope that will help keep you going. I’ll, as I told you before, send some money as soon as it can be obtained here for the other loan and also for you to have a little surplus or for bonds.

The Newton Co. E. came yesterday again and I noticed the rules and regulations for the coming black out were printed. Maybe I’d better not express any

[page 3] my opinions on that as you have my reactions already.

I hope the picture you had taken of D. will be good. He is rather a good looking baby according to the pictures I have already. Must have received his looks from his good looking Mother. You know I think she is OK, not only in looks but numerous other ways.

The book I wrote you about yesterday is really worthwhile and if possible be sure to get

[page 4] a copy to read. I’ll repeat the title “The Consultation Room” by Fredric Loomis. I’m sure you would like it.

Geo. is moving back into our tent today. The other M.D. left so now there are only two – The dentist and myself. So Geo. is coming back to keep our spirits – either up or down. Depending whether we are talking of Nevada or Indiana – The other fellow here is from La. so he just isn’t in the picture at all –

Love Daddy

    “Must have received his looks from his good looking Mother. You know I think she is OK, not only in looks but numerous other ways.” Maybe he was trying to make up for us his (seemingly) less than kind comments in an earlier letter. But perhaps he didn’t have her reaction yet.

    LOL: “Geo. is coming back to keep our spirits – either up or down. Depending whether we are talking of Nevada or Indiana”
