Full Text: Dearest Mother & Daddy,

Well, I thought I would have moved by this time, but I haven’t, so I decided I had better write & let you know that all’s well.

I received your letter that you wrote the 19th on the 29th. I guess everyone was really happy to hear about Japan’s surrender. Everybody over here sure went wild.

I’m having my day off tomorrow & I think I’ll go down to the nurses club and spend the day. It’s so nice out there, just to get away from everything.

The mail has been pretty poor lately. I haven’t heard from Louis since last Sunday. In fact, the letter I had from you all on Wednesday was the only one I’ve had all week.

We haven’t been having to work to hard lately. It’s been pretty nice too.

There isn’t much news so I’ll say so long for now. I’ll write again in a couple of days. Don’t write to me at this address though.

Lots of love, Annie Edith
