I changed the schedule a little this A.M. Did the running around before letter writing and still have plenty of time for the mail. I had a little matter of collecting some water samples so got them early and got back.
Your v-mail of Sept. 22 came yesterday. It was about the same date as your latest air mail which arrived several days ago. A Newton Co. E. came also Aug. 19. In it the teachers for the coming year were listed. I wonder
[page 2] about some of them especially one – all the kids will probably be “wiggley” by the time the year is over. Better not let the kids know I wrote that. I think you know which one I mean. For the life of me I can figure for sure which grade Mark is in. John I know because he started on the East side of the road last year – I believe Mark is in the 5th. Is that correct?
I’ve just been informed that there was two fried chicken came into camp and I’ve been promised a piece. Things like that don’t happen
[page 3] too frequently. Hope it’s good.
I also got a call to come to sick bay so I really didn’t have as much time to write as I thought I was going to have. Seems something pops up most of the time but that always makes things interesting and makes the day pass more rapidly.
Must get going –

By the time I was in high school–maybe even earlier–my dad was on the school board, may have even been president of it. So his interest in the teacher list doesn’t surprise me.
At least he admits that all the kids will be wiggley, not just Mark!
Fried chicken was one of our frequent and favorite meals when I was growing up.
