A Short Trip (Roscoe)

Letter transcription:

Lieut. R. S. Yegerlehner USNR
Navy 60
F.P.O. San Francisco Calif.
Aug. 2 & 3, 1943

Dear Mother,

First I must apologize for not writing yesterday. It seems what with getting back from my trip to see Commander Frericks & Dr. Joe and with routine stuff to do after coming back I didn’t get a chance to write. I spent Sat. night with Joe and Sun. and Sun. night with Frericks. It wasn’t a pleasure trip but one in which business could be tied in with a slight visit. My Sunday’s letter was written from there so you can see if their mail is faster than ours.

Comdr. Frericks wrote told me that his

[page 2] wife had received some newspaper clippings from Mrs. Howell in Reno Nevada. Mr. Howell told me his wife would send some to you at the same time. I’m just wondering if she failed to send them to you or whether you thought best not to write about them. It would not be out of order to mention them if you did get them but she might have over looked sending them to you. Those would be interesting if you had a chance to read them.

I suppose bet by the time this gets to you the boys will be preparing to get their school togs ready – just doesn’t seem possible that that time has rolled around again. Or does it? It’s a little hard for me to remember what grades

[page 3] the boys will be in. However, I remember D’s grade – You might say the walkie Talkie grade or the crawley jabberin grade.

Our mail again – There isn’t any but it will come floating along in a great bunch. My mail to you according to your letters isn’t quite as spotty as before but still isn’t as good as you or I would like for it to be.

I’ll have to send John a some token of some sort for his birthday – I’ll send it the next day or two and I guess that will be plenty of time. I’ll have to remember D. a little later when his year is up.

Well, I guess that is about all for today –
Love Daddy
