Transcription of Artifact Content
Aldershot, Eng. October 16/40
I haven’t heard from you for some time. Nor I haven’t written either. But here’s a small letter now. This is my eighth for this aft. & evening. & I’m all caught up on answering again. (Until I get some more letters)
I spent the Weed-end with Pearls’ cousin in London Her name is Eva Robson 26 yrs. old & works for a lawyer. And boy is she a good cook. I had a chicken dinner.
I was so glad to hear from you this morn. I have been looking for a letter from you for so long. & I begin to think you had forgotten your little brother in England. I have written you about three times.
Well I’ll start answering some of your questions. It’s a good thing you ask me things. Or I wouldn’t know what to write.
Well the liking of England is wearing off now. “There is no place like home.” No mater what kind of a dump your home is. It is better than anyplace else.
