Hi Honey:

Just got your telegram this morning They must come by carrier pigeon, which died on the way. Nice of you to be so thoughtful, but by now you ought to know that I have gotten hold of my mail.

Have a half hr before I have to go to afternoon classes. You shall see me in my nice white helmet. The flight officers + sgts. all wear white helmets with a tiny red circle with white letters on the red - stating your rank - Lt., Sgt., Sec Capt. etc. Very conspicuous, on top of myself being a rarity in the air corps. When I was at the dental clinic last night the officer said I was sort of rare + told him I was nor only rare but almost an impossibility.
