Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

I received your letter yesterday written July 26th, & as usual it was very welcomed. Thanks for the stamps. They are sure a big help. I also got a letter from Louis, & one back that I had written Feb. 21st. But as you say we can take all of that now.

I’m off duty from 12-3:30 to-day. It’s about 2:30 now & I’ve just had a nap, so thought I would write before going back on duty. We’ve been rather busy on my ward for the past few days. Busier than usual. But even so it’s not too bad.

Yesterday I was off all afternoon & I just sort of loafed around- slept & read & took some pictures. I got some good shots of “Rebel”. Will have them developed as soon as possible. I’m enclosing some snaps we’ve taken recently. If you will look on the back I will explain them. Some were taken with Vivian’s camera & some with mine.

There isn’t so much news. Kay Kyser & his show are all on the island. His whole band isn’t with him I don’t think, just “Ish Kabibble” & a couple of others

Well, I started this yesterday, & now it is to-day (naturally). It’s about 6:30 & I’ve been off since 3:30.

I received your letter to-day written Sunday, July 29th. Hope Uncle Roy is better. As you say you will just about have to rent a wing of the Hospital.

I guess I’ll say “So Long” for now. I want to be sure & get this in the morning mail.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
