Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

I received your letter to-day written July 19th along with one written July 10th which I told you must have gotten lost. I guess it must have gotten on the wrong road.

I sure am glad to know that Uncle Bob is better. Someone is just going to have to make him take care of himself.

It certainly is too bad about Robert Ridenhour III. He’s so young for something like that to happen to him.

I received 2 copies of the “State” yesterday, & in one of them was the picture of the decorating the monument in front of the Court House on Memorial Day, & then there was an article written by Rosa Caldwell Sides. It sure looked good to see part of the old home town. It’s been almost 19 months since I’ve seen any of it you know.

I’m supposed to go to a birthday party to-night for this Lt. I’ve been going out with & one of the nurses in our unit. Both of their birthdays are to-day.

I also got a letter from Louis & one from Aunt Esther to-day. Mail has been very poor for the past week, but to-day quite a lot came in.

Saw a very good movie last night here at the Club. It was “The Corn is Green” Bette Davis played in it. When it comes to Concord, be sure & see it.

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

Lots of love, Annie Edith
