Dear Mother –

Still no further news so it’s wait again for another day – hope this doesn’t keep up too long and I really think it will be, as I told you before, the first of the week before anything definite turns up.

It seems I’m having a little trouble drawing money I have on the books so if I write a check for transportation home and there isn’t enough to cover same have Teague honor the amount and I’ll take care of it then. Just telling you in case something like that does happen.

Of course if I get orders to some area place in the 9th district my fare will be paid or at least I’ll be repaid after getting there. Hope that 9th district deal

[page 2] works out.

Jim is out today – went out to see a doctor friend of his who is stationed nearby so I’m just sitting around the hotel chewing my nails and waiting. In fact it’s almost 1200 and I’m writing this in the lobby and waiting also for the maid to get the room fixed up. She seems to be a lot later this morn. Maybe it’s the extra Sat. brush up that is causing the delay. I just walked over to pick up an ash tray and I saw the door was open so I guess the room is getting the once over.

I suppose by now some of your letters are returning. The last one I received from you was dated Feb. 11 so I’m not well informed on what is going on – not as well as I hope to be in the next few days.

Well, I’ll give you the red hot dope as soon as it comes out of the horse’s mouth.
Lots of Love
Daddy

    “In fact it’s almost 1200 and I’m writing this in the lobby and waiting also for the maid to get the room fixed up.” What a nice luxury, after so many months. I do recall his remarks about the lazy boys who used to clean his quarters.

    “Well, I’ll give you the red hot dope as soon as it comes out of the horse’s mouth.” Marvelous mixed metaphors!
