Lieut. R.S. Yegerlehner
F.P.O. San Fran. Cal.
Sept. 23, 1943
I’m a little late in writing today but in plenty of time for the outgoing mail. I had to spend most of the morning at the Slaughter house inspecting the beef as the butchering was being done. It seems I’m getting to be more of a Jack of all trades more and more each day.
The date I see has a particular meaning since D. is at his first year. I’ll bet the boys are making a to do over his birthday and his Mother also. Even his dad is thinking about little D. a little more today than otherwise. I suppose by
[page 2] now he has the birthday present I sent him. I’m certain I can be nearer to him when his next birthday rolls around.
Our mail is a little slow again but it usually comes along so we just wait and then seemingly out of the blue a bunch come in. It’s been some time since I’ve written John & Mark but one of these days I’ll break down again.
Just repeating – I sent $250⁰⁰ on Sept. 16th so if you haven’t received it let me know. I’ve kept all the numbers, etc.
Well, since I’m late I’d better stop and get this out.
Love Daddy –
