17 Oct. 45
Just about to finish the Senior O.D. watch and it has been a little crammed up, but now at 2030 things had slowed down but I’ve got my fingers crossed. You see since I made Lt. Cdr. I have the Senior O.D. instead of the Junior and it is a little more responsibility but not bad.
Your letter which you thought I’d get Monday night which I was to call or wire you about came today – so proceed as you are – I know you can tell more about how things are working out so go ahead and use your own judgment, only have things fixed pretty nice, even though it does cost a little more. It doesn’t seem as if the oil burner would take up much space where you had it in the diagram.
We still haven’t heard anything about the
[page 2] discharges but of course they are not effective until Nov. 1 but there surely is going to be plenty of stuff raised between now and then and much more after that.
I don’t know what happened to the mail again that it is so slow, but maybe it will pick up in a day or two. Hope so.
The weather has been terrible all day today – a heavy mist – more than a fog but hardly enough to cause one to wear a rain coat.
You remember the (jg) I used to write about – Well, he took a plane to Pearl Harbor – got a ship and came back to San Francisco. He came out for a short visit – He is Tokyo bound today. He used to write to a girlfriend every day in Canada but she wrote him that she couldn’t wait – so his affair must have been rather one-sided. He didn’t seem to be too much disturbed.
Well, I do hope I can get some good word to you in a few days –
