Yours of Sept. 7 & 9 came yesterday – In the 7 letter you seemed to be OK, but in the 9th you wrote of being in bed and from your letter I supposed you had a bowel upset. I can think of nothing better than Kaopectate. However by now you are all over that I hope. In one of your letters was the letter from Mead Johnson & Co. I thought it was nice of them to write and offer – of course there is nothing in their line that I want or need just not at present.
A letter came from Wayne W. and also a v-mail from Dr. Mathews. Sometime when I get ambition I’ll drop them a line – Wayne seems to be busy having school and rationing trouble. Dr. Mathews also seems to be busy and anxious for me to return – No more anxious than I however – believe me.
You mentioned Doris Green getting married – That is one on me because I don’t know who Doris Green is – possibly I do but just can[‘t] remember now. The baby crop
[page 2] seems to be picking up not gradually but by leaps & bounds. Funny how things like that keep going or is it?
I have a new boss – came yesterday and I have to go meet him in about ½ hour – since I’m the only old timer here I guess I’ll have to show him the ropes. It’s always a pleasure as well as a care because some of the fellows with lots of brass really have brass. Although most of them are pretty fine individuals.
Hicky Reinhart sent me four plugs of chewing tobacco. I didn’t know he knew I chewed the nasty stuff. I don’t very much but when I find I’m smoking too much I take on a chew and that gives me a rest. Is that good? You really won’t need to bother answering that letter question, because I know what you would say and rightly so – why use either?!
Well, Dear I hope things are OK with you and continues to be so.
P.S. This is the last of this paper – hence the both sides issue.
