June 8, 1918

Dearest Myrtle,

I certainly am lonesome and blue today and maybe you won't wonder when I tell you why. Today our chief engineer called us up and told us he would give us a pree day furlough and I was broke as usual. We will be here at least a month and they could give us ten day leave just as well as five, but no they won't do it. They seem to try to make life just as miserable as possible and they sure do succeed too.
