Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

I received your letter this afternoon that was written the 16th, & every time you tell me of someone back there who has been reported missing & then been found to be a prisoner of war, it gives me so much more encouragement. I know Louis is safe over there somewhere, & I pray to God that he is unharmed.

Vivian & I are still going over to the Dispensary to do physicals on the WAC’s. I keep thinking I might run across Dorothy Small, but so far I haven’t.

There isn’t much to write about. I’m feeling fine, & we’ve been working very hard.

Last night I had the nicest dream. I was back from overseas & I was at home with all of you & I remember Margaret being there so distinctly. It was wonderful & I hated to wake up & find it was only a dream.

I got two more letters back to-day that I had written to Louis Oct 29, & Nov 2. I had a letter from Florence yesterday, & she said she had gotten back two of her letters written in Nov.

There isn’t much other news as I’ve said before, so until next time “Good night”.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
