Oct. 13, 1945
Just sent out the telegram and also collected six letters – including the one you wrote Thurs. eve.
I just don’t know hardly what to say about the heat in the office. I guess if Nick thinks his furnace is big enough to take care of all the rooms with the extra in the back of Mildred’s he just as well go ahead but on the other hand if we could get an oil burner for the present system I’d just as soon do it that way. It would be just as automatic and no bother. You might check to see if Sears could put an oil burner in it, but with all and everything we will have to have another radiator or some heating element in the back room. If you can’t decide what to do just wait on the heat until I get home.
The discharges are not effective until after Nov. 1. That is that when
[page 2] our applications are supposed to go in to the district here. Then we will be sent to our own home district. I made mine our this p.m. In other words we are not clear yet whether we can’t send them to the 12th Naval District until Nov. 1, or if we can send them in now and they work on them after Nov. 1 and we be ready to leave Nov. 1. The Yeoman is going to find out this p.m. I think I’m the 4th one here to make application. The others were here on the ground floor when the word came thru.
Don’t worry or fret too much about getting things fixed up. I mean the heating, etc. It might take a couple of weeks after I get there but that won’t be too much time lost considering the 3 years and some.
I’m going to try to get this in the Sun. a.m. mail so you will get it early.
Again don’t worry or fret. If Vincent can do the carpenter work – swell – we’ll get some heat somehow. I’d like to have a pretty definite figure as to the amount per mo. and the cost across the alley before we give Nick the word. That’s all for now,
P.S. If anyone asks you when I’m coming home I think it would be safe to say possibly about the middle of Nov.
