last letter home dated January 6, 1943
I have received all of your letters and was glad to hear from you. I have been out of the hospital over a month now and am feeling fine, so there is nothing to worry about and I am gland to hear everything is fine at home. I got my picture from The Record, too. I saw Mike a couple times and he is looking fine. He told me that Andy was joining the Navy. I also like that birthday card and Xmas card. I had a very nice Xmas and a happy New Year’s Day. I hope you all had the same.
Best wishes and good luck.
