Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

I’m on duty, but thought while I’m not busy I would go ahead & start this. You see I’m going to a dance to-night, & I knew I wouldn’t get it written to-night, because I’m supposed to go at 7:30 & I don’t get off until 7:00. I’m going with this same boy from Ga. that I went with before. He’s very nice & a good dancer. We are going to an Engineer Club. We’ve been there before.

Had two letters from Louis to-day, & he says that he’s meeting up with some of his friends every now & then.

Tomorrow we are supposed to go out on another boat trip. Hope it doesn’t rain. We are going to take a picnic lunch, & drink beer or something.

I was sorry to hear about Mr. Boyd. Hope he gets along alright. I had a letter from Margaret several days ago, but that was before he was operated on, & she was telling me about it.

I have “Rebel” over at the ward here with me & all of the patients have been playing with her. She’s going to be spoiled rotten. “Pedro” died the other day. He was sick for a couple of days & then died. So now I only have “Rebel” & she getting to be enough to handle. However now she runs loose all of the time & sleeps in the tent at night- usually on the foot of my bed. She’s very good too.

There’s not much other news. I’m feeling fine. Tell everyone “hello” for me.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
