Almost time for mail call but I'll try to get this written. If there's some mail, will write another - nothing else to do.
We still don't know when we're going to rest camp or where. I wish they'd decide something or other.
Made a small wooden box this afternoon, to put the things I bought in Romania. First chance I get to have it censored I'll send it to you. It has in it - two blouses, a jacket, ten handkerchiefs, a tea set with four napkins, a scarf, a bottle of Coty perfume, a reading glass, a Hungarian man's hat, the small pop chute + two panels of the big parachute, I think that's all there is. A Russian soldier gave me a Hungarian pistol but you can't send firearms thru' the mail anymore.
You know I think I gained some weight while I was gone. Haven't had a chance to get weighed to find out however. Now I think we're all getting fat + lazy doing nothing - not complaining tho'.
We really had quite a good time after we bailed out. the Russians + natives took very good care of us.
Guess I'll go see what the mail situation is-
All my love
