18 Sept. 45

Dear Mother,

Sent the telegram about noon and had to get all the dope on the draft squared away so may not have time to write all I want to.

There was a letter here from Mom and one from J.B. Moore – I knew about all that Mom wrote and J.B. didn’t say much either, only he seems to think Liberty will be closed down in pretty short order.

We went over Liberty yesterday just 2 hours and 10 min. after we left Chicago – I didn’t get to see much of the place because I was on the wrong side but by the river and all I knew just about where we were. The time from Kansas City to Olathe was so short that I thought we were landing at Fairfax. I think he started down just as we left K.C.

We made a stop in Texas, one in Arizona, and one in S. Calif. It was a nice trip but I didn’t sleep much. The seats were not comfortable enough for that even though the air wasn’t a bit rough.

There didn’t seem to be any orders – in fact

[page 2] no one has received any orders since I left and the commander I told you about still has no word. Anyway don’t send that blue suit of mine as yet. I’ll give you the word and in the meantime I’ll stay home. You see I now have more stuff here that I brought in the beginning so I don’t want too much to drag along.

Well, I’ll see if I can mail this and promise to get started earlier tomorrow –
