Full Text: Dear Hun,

I know you have been looking to hear from me. I am still en route to my destination. Don't worry about me, I am well and happy and having lots of fun.

How are you? I hope you have not been ill. Will write you a long letter as soon as I get where I am going.

When you write mother, tell her you heard from me and that I am well.

I saw Dooby-- do you remember him? He finished Benedict and is now a Lt. I was very glad to see him.

Remember me to everybody and write soon to the address I sent you sometime ago.

Lots of love, [unclear]
