The only mail today was the Nov. 18 issue of the Kentland Democrat. That was the one in which I was mentioned as having seen Hicky Reinhart. That seems like ages ago since I’ve seen him. I’m supposed to send Marg a statement that I want the paper so that she can send it second class. So if I want the paper to be continued I’ll have to write some sort of a note. She probably has erased my name from the list already because it has
[page 2] been so long.
Just now turned on the radiator because it was really getting a little chilly. It always does in the evening and the extra heat seems to help lots.
Well I finally was able to buy a pair of shoes today – a pair of Florsheim – a pound and 11 shilling I think – Just a little better than $4,.00 or maybe about $5.00. Buying a watch and a pair of shoes between pay day really cuts a hole in the cash but that is the penalty of civilization. Before any kind of shoes were OK and one didn’t need a watch because you never got far enough
[page 3] away from chow to miss it.
Lentz just brought me a drink of water – don’t know why he wanted to be so nice but probably he is after something or wants me to do something for him which means more than a glass of water. There is always something back of little kind deeds like that. I’ve had to chase him out 3-4 times while I’m trying to write this and finally got him out but had to get up and shut the door after he left.
Sometimes I think there is the nuttiest bunch around here but when you get a group of Drs. anything might happen.
[page 4] Just as I finished that page Lentz came in again and after about 5 min. he finally left what is that saying – Who has more fun than monkeys? Or monkeys is the funniest people? I sometimes wonder about Drs.
It seems I’ve written about all I know so you can see what a blank I am because if there is anything interesting or intelligent in this I’ve missed my guess.
I haven’t said anything about the weather today – fair – Now I think I’ve written all the usual things – so solong
