Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

Received your letter today written June 1st & it made me so happy to get the other telegram that Louis sent. I’ll bet he’s back in the States by this time. I hope he is.

Well, Daddy, Sunday is Father’s Day, & I hope you have the nicest day. I know it will be a happy one because of the fact that you know your son is on his way back to the States, & may be back there to help you celebrate Father’s Day. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Anyway, Happy Father’s Day to the swellest Dad on earth. I know this won’t get to you until after Sunday, but the wish is just the same.

Vivian & one of the other girls is playing cribbage to-night. That’s a card game, for two thank goodness, because I want to write letters.

I had a letter from Mom Parish to-day, & she sent me this picture. The two boys with them are the ones who were always over at their house like I was. Thought you might like to see my S.F. family. Smitty, Dago, & I used to feel almost brothers & sister. We had fun, though.

Not much news of things going on around here. I’m still very busy on my ward. We keep a full house most of the time- 93 patients.

I haven’t heard from Jay since he left. But I imagine he is pretty busy getting reassigned & everything.

Well, I guess it’s good-night now. I’m still looking & hoping for a letter from Louis.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
