We have a nice writing room now complete with radio + Bob Hope is on now so this letter has competition. It's a bit crowded in here tonight cause the lights in the tents aren't functioning tonight.

Bill Miskoff was down last evening + stayed over night. He's going to the 484th for awhile, that's where your cousin Arnie is. Miskoff said he had pneumonia + was in the hospital at Bari for awhile. He's pretty good now but looked a bit peaked.
