Keeps the Wolf Away (Roscoe)

Letter transcription:

Lieut. R.S. Yegerlehner USNR
USN Base Hosp. #4 Navy 133
F.P.O. San Francisco Calif.
Dec. 15, 1943

Dear Mother,

Your V-mail of Nov. 4 came today and it made me feel rather badly again because you were in that period where no mail was coming to you due to the ten days when I was away. By now the letters should be coming to you regular again I hope.

No need to mention the check I’m sending because you will find it. Hope it keeps the wolf away from the door until I can get more saved. Use it where ever or for what ever you need and I’m sure you’ll need it

[page 2] or can use it in lots of places. I’ll be anxious to get the detailed financial statement you mentioned. You did in this letter mention the bonds you bought and the Insurance you paid off during the year. I have a pretty hard time trying to remember what Insurance comes due, how much and when but I guess you remember and with the notices coming in I’m sure you can’t forget.

I’m surprised that you compared D. to all men shoppers – Said he was got too anxious to be on the move – you know very well I always liked to go shopping and took all the time in the world. Or did I?

[page 3] It have been a little chilly around here today. From your letter it sounded as if it might be as cold here as there. Last night I had the radiator turned on full blast and it didn’t feel too bad, but tonite the wind is in the other direction so didn’t have to have the extra heat.

You mentioned something about the Christmas tree – Well we are beginning to see a few decorations around here and there. I noticed some decorated bells in one of the wards today. I suppose there will be  more in the next few day. Makes Christmas seem a little more real – if that is possible out here – good night

Love Daddy
