Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

Just a note to-night to let you know that all is well, & I’m fine.

I’ve moved to a different location, & I’ll write you a nice long letter tomorrow & tell you all about.

Guess who I saw to-night? Col. Arn. Remember he was my commanding office at Sub-Station? He was a Major there.

Vivian & I went out to his hospital to see him.

Will tell you all about our trip, & also a lot of other stuff. In other words another episode of my life in the Philippines.

So good-night now. Hope all is well at home.

Lots of love, Annie Edith P.S. I’m not asking for anything to be sent to me yet, but remember what I told you- Underlined- “yes” - not underlined- “no”.
