Four letters from you today one from the Folks and a birthday greeting from The Krulls. All of the letters were old the f some early in Oct. and the others early in Nov. It’s always good to get those old ones to fill in the gaps. It seemed you had missed one of mine back in Oct. and it was a rather important one. I think it was the one I wrote the day my orders came. I guess you have all those by now. I haven’t lined up your letters lately to see how many are
[page 2] missing but I doubt if there are many which I failed to receive.
In one of your letters today you described the flowers and the letter. I still don’t understand why Palmer wrote the letter to the flower people. (I’ve forgotten their names). He had your address etc. I guess it was just the way he wanted to do it.
I expected before now to get something on the finances but it seems those letters must be missing. The last time you wrote about finances was in Oct. Possibly you are waiting to make out an annual one at the end of the year – I really don’t care just so I know you are able to get along.
I liked that little note
[page 3] or rather the last line of one of the letters where you wrote about writing letters in order to receive them. You put it in a clever way and the quotation marks around the ending of the letter – However you have used the quotation marks rather frequently and I remember what you wrote when you started that practice. That was way back many long months ago.
The time now is 10:45 PM and very nearly my bed time so for now –
Lots of Love

I like the way he gets all the letters “lined up.” We can appreciate such organization today!
