Home from the Show (Roscoe)

Letter transcription:

Lieut. R.S. Yegerlehner USNR
USN Base Hosp. #4 Navy 133
F.P.O. San Francisco Calif.
Nov. 12, 1943

Dear Mother,

Just home from the show – The shows are all older here than previously but here we are in an enclosed building and of course the sound affects are much better. I really don’t care for shows now anymore than I did way back when but it is something to do to pass away the time – helps kill an evening as quickly as anything here.

Seems as if I’m stumped for want of something to write at the moment. There has been a little mail about each day but so far Ruth’s letter was the only one. It seems that v-mail is a little faster so you might try a few more. As I have it figure you didn’t get my corrected address until just a few days ago and all the mail in between times had to go either to my old home or to the incorrect address and then be sent on so it will probably be some time before mail gets to me.

Seems I’m repeating what I wrote a few days ago so solong
Love Daddy
