8 March 44

Hi Darling:

My, my - 10 days I've been here + still no mail - a veritable outrage honey. I have written more letters + cards since I've been here than I have in the year previous + not a damned scrap of mail. Have been hounding mail call twice a day - stand in line for about 45 minutes each time for nothing. Think I'll catch mail call once a week from now on- save shoe leather.

Finished my two trips into the pressure chamber. Once to 30 thousand + to-day - 38,000 ft. Got a tooth ache - improper filling cause pain at high altitude - so I may have to have 5 fillings drilled out + 5 new ones put in. Gonna try to get them cleaned + see if they give me a couple of teeth to fill the missing ones. Was at the dental clinic to night - have to go again to-morrow.

Have you been getting my letters? I hope one of us is getting mail.

I look like a freak. My face is burned + wind blown + parts have peeled + parts haven't - hence I look like a spotted freak or something - I gonna have to start using face cream or something. Got my hair cut yesterday - look a bit more civilized now.
