Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

To-day I received your letter written Sunday, Feb 18th. So now it seems that our mail is coming through alright. I also got a letter from Florence written Feb. 12th. It doesn’t seem right not to be getting a letter or expecting one from my darling.

I appreciated the clippings about Capt. Bowman who is now a Lt. Col. I was glad to get the other clippings too- about John M. Cook, the Hollingsworths & Fay Small. Fay might be stationed around here somewhere. There are some WAC close by.

I was hoping I would have some word or good news about Louis by now. But I keep telling myself that as the old saying goes “No news is good news”. I just know he must be alright, somewhere, & I keep praying to God that he is.

So you got the new preacher installed. Hope he works out better than the last few.

We’ve been awfully busy at the hospital for the last few days. To-day I worked all day long from 7:00 this morning ‘til 7:00 to-night. and I mean I really worked, & I’m rather tired tonight. But I knew I must write you a few lines to let you know that all’s well. I’m feeling fine, in spite of my hard work.

I guess I’ll say good-night now & go to bed early. It’s only 8:30, but I know I can sleep without rocking. So good night now.

Lots of love, Annie Edith P.S. Here is some more Jap invasion money.
