Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

This is going to be a short note to-night because I’m going to a dance to-night, & I have to take a shower & dress.

I’m supposed to go with a fellow from Atlanta, Ga.- a good old “Rebel”. He & I should speak the same language.

Speaking of Rebel- you should see what I have now. The cutest little puppy you’ve ever seen. I just got her yesterday, & I’ve named her “Rebel”. Already she follows me around pretty good, but last night I had to put her on the foot of my cot to keep her from whining. One of the enlisted men in our outfit gave her to me.

I got your letter to-day that was written June 14th. Yes I got the letter you wrote May 18th the first one you wrote after getting the word about Louis.

Gee, I get more anxious every day just waiting for some word from Louis. I hope I’ll hear from him soon.

Well, there’s not much other news. I’m feeling fine, & still working hard.

So I must go get cleaned up. Good-night now.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
