Wednesday- June 14, 1944

Dear Florence, Barbara, and Nancy-

This one letter to all three will have to suffice for the time being- for there is scarcely an idle moment to write- and when there is an idle moment I usually am so tired that I just fall asleep.

Today, however I have had some time to myself and have been far enough away from activities to really enjoy myself.

As you may surmise I am some where in France- just where is of course not to be disclosed, but as the papers have carried the story of “D” day you know that it was on the coast of Normandy. The going for the passed week has been quite rugged, particularly for an old man like myself- but I have found that I could keep up with the youngsters. You should have received a letter from me dated June 5th
