[a brief note from a tired boy who appreciates getting a dollar in the mail!]
May 6, 1943, Sunday
Dear Mom, Dad, Sis & Jake
Sunday is here along with a very hot day. Here is my schedule for the day’s doings.
9:30-12:00-pitching horshoes (sic)
6:00-7:00-now writing this letter,
7:00-? going to the show.
This program is my typical one for Sundays.
Today I received your letter with the dollar and the license, which I am enclosing. I got quite a burn today while playing horse-shoes. It doesn’t seem to be too warm here but it really is.
Bob Mac was quite lucky to get to Monmouth. Some guys get all the breaks, but good luck to him. I also got a card from Tim from Devens. I could scarecely read it. If you get his address, send it on. … The candy you sent me was swell. I’ll try to write tomorrow. Good Bye, Moe.
