Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

Well, I’m having my P.M. to-day & I’ve just come over from dinner, so I thought I’ would start my letter-writing early.

There isn’t much news. The last letter I had from you all was written Sunday July 8th. I got it Saturday. So I should have another one by tomorrow. Haven’t had a letter from Louis in a couple of days, but the last one I had I go 2 on the same day.

We have still been kept very busy, but we are supposed to get some more nurses soon. That will be a big help.

I’m feeling fine except that as usual, the heat is still “hot”. For the past few days though we have had a little rain which gives us some relief.

I saw a cute movie in our club last night. it was “Murder He Says” with Fred McMiney. It was really a riot. I’m supposed to go to a movie to-night at the Ordinance Club with Lt. Coles. He’s the boy I was telling you about from Atlanta.

Well, I guess this is all for now. I’ll write again in a couple of days.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
