[Editor’s note: Roscoe spent the next few days in Noumea, New Caledonia. His first post in the Pacific was at Noumea where he was stationed for about six months. Before he left for the Russell Islands, he put some of his unnecessary clothing in storage.]

I have now missed writing two days but have a little time right now. Notice the address – This one is correct – My mail will really be in a bad way for some time to come but I guess it will all get there in time.
Right now I’m back at the old stamping ground – My clothes as far as I have gone into them are OK but I haven’t given them the good once over.
I’ll try to write you a better letter in the near future and give you more dope.
