Apr. 29, 1944

Dear Mother,

This is pretty late Sat. night. Mr. French and I got interested in Acey Ducey and then in a card game and we just almost didn’t stop. So it is almost Sunday morning. Joe has the duty so that is the reason he wasn’t here – We are planning on coming home next week end if at all possible that is if the powers that be are agreeable.

Your letter today left me a little up in the air – because you said something about having the stitches removed from D. lip but nothing about having them put in, etc. You said in an earlier letter he had fallen but nothing about stitches.

[page 2] there just isn’t. There are enough big ones here if they could or would be divided but I guess that will never come about.

Well, it’s late and the room is a little cold – so good night and
Love Daddy

    “I got interested in Acey Ducey and then in a card game” I had to look up acey ducey: a variant of backgammon.

    “You said in an earlier letter he had fallen but nothing about stitches.” Yes, two falls in April 1944….it was a traumatic month!
