Dear Mom and Dad,

This is the first chance I've had to write. We've had plenty of trouble with our lines and the Chinese. I didn't go to bed for 2 days until last night.

It's still cold here at night. We are always out at night now. By the time I get home I'll be able to see at night like a cat.

Well the baseball season started yesterday but I just heard over the radio that the Sox lost.

I'm sorry this letter is so short, but we have work to do and I have to go now. I haven't received any mail for 6 days.
