Full Text: Dear Hun,

This is just to let you know that I have changed my station. I did not get any of the Xmas packages before I left. I left a forwarding address for them to be returned to Florence, therefore if they come back just keep until you hear from me. I have been here since 12 Nov. and I am getting along fine. Since I don't know long I shall be here, don't write me but I shall write you as often as possible.

I am enjoying my self [sic] very much. Have seen two football games and have been out to dinner three times.

I am glad you received the hassocks. I think they are beautiful also. I have seen some very pretty ones here but they cost to [sic] much.

Hope you are well. Remember me to all. Will write again soon. Don't worry about me.

Love, Hun
