Hi Darling,

Just a few lines before I hit the hay.

Didn't get any mail today but have had quite a bit lately, so I can't legitametly [sic.] complain.

Darn I'm terribly sorry hon, should have told you not to write anymore. Won't be around long enough to get many more mail.

Talked to the boys in S-2 + they said I could tell when I expect to be home because it will be a guess so - my guess is that I will be in the states within a month. Let's put it this way - a minimum of three weeks + 2 maximum, seven weeks. Had hoped to be able to get my orders held up a bit in order to get back during warmer weather, but couldn't work it. Don't be surprised if my estimates are all wrong. In the first place I don't know how long one waits for the boat, secondly, don't know how long a boat takes. I've known guys that made it in nine days + others take twenty seven, that was when they came over so you can take your pick.
