Dear Mom and Dad,

200 DAYS

It's a beautiful day. It finally stopped raining. We got our phonograph working. We have over 100 records. It's a 45 R.P.M. player.

The mail still hasn't been getting through. I hope the outgoing mail hasn't been fouled up.

There hasn't been much happening here lately so I haven't much to say.

Today is Father's Day. I went to church and offered today's mass for you Dad. It's all I can do.

As you'll notice in the films I sent you that none are of me. I've got mine in the negatives. Get them developed and printed. O.K? OK.

I'm not going to continue this letter, I have to go now.
