Not a blessed thing to report today, Honey, except the wonderful blessing of three letters from you. My love, you’re simply a divine woman.
Went out to fly this afternoon; but not much luck! The General called our boss1 in for a conversation on the “H”2 and using it as a cannon firing invasion ship. As a result, we sat around all afternoon with exactly nothing to do.
Wrote you a letter and mailed it today. Must write my father soon. Saw an open-air movie last night Whispering Ghosts3 with Milton Berle. Very zany and we got quite a few laughs out of
Sgts. Stallsworth and Cooper went to New Caledonia yesterday.
Read some more of the Bible: am in Joshua now!
Seehorn repeated some Bible verses as we bedded down last night. I made the nightly search for mosquitoes and various animals under the net. Said my prayers and retired for the evening. I thought quite a bit about you, dearest, as I do every night.
