Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

I had my P.M. today & so did Vivian, so we had quite a busy afternoon. First we went to Quartermaster to buy some shirts but they didn’t have any. So then we went to a nearby P.X. to buy some things. After that we went out to a General Hospital to see some of our girls who are patients there.

Well, yesterday I got another package. It was the cologne & you couldn’t have please me any better. You know how crazy I am about Yardley’s Bond Street anyway. The other is nice too. Tell Mamma I think those little cakes of soap are cute. Vivian & I ate one can of the chicken last night. Sure was good too.

You should see “Pedro”. He gets cuter every day, & he’s so spoiled. He’s learning to climb on my finger. Why this afternoon I sent our little tent girl out to buy some bananas, & I paid 5¢ apiece, just for “Pedro”. Extravagant, ain’t I?

Last night I saw a good movie here in our club. It was “Practically Yours”. Sure was cute.

Not much other news for this time. I’m fine, & still just living for a letter from Louis.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
