7:00 P.M.

Our orders are out + we're heading for Lincoln to morrow sometime. Will probably be there before you get this letter. Where I'll go from there is hard to say - I hear we come back out west I hope not - I dislike this part of the country - too barren + mountainous.

Whether we'll get a furlough or delay out of Lincoln is just a matter of speculation. If we do I think I'll have enough to make it. Have thirty dollars left which is a wonder that I had brains enough to hang onto. God what a fool I am.

Got our rings yesterday afternoon. The graduation exercise lasted about an hour.

Honey can you ever forgive me - for the fool I've been? Have died a thousand deaths knowing how I have caused such misery + disappointment to you. I know I have truly learned my lesson - if only I could know that you can believe me.
