Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

Well, here I am back again with a few more lines. Everytime I sit down to write I wonder what I’m going to say. I’ve about run out of news.

Of course I’m fine, and I guess that is what is most important after all.

We’ve still been spending more of our time playing bridge, & I’m learning quite a bit about it. I hadn’t played in so long until I got on the ship.

I went to church a little while ago back on the deck on the stern of the ship.

This is a nice Sunday morning, except that it is pretty warm. I got a little sunburn on my legs yesterday.

I hope by this time you have gotten the keys to my foot locker & suite case, & have found the things in the bottom of the foot locker.

The things from Ft. McDowell should have come by now. They were supposed to have been sent about the last of December. The keys to them are tied on my suitcase In my barracks bag.

I wonder if my allotment check this month. I think I told you that I had increased it to $100.00. I’m not sure what I’ll do about my bonds after I get overseas. I hope I can keep them up.

Well, this seems to be all for now.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
