Dear Mom, and Family,
Your letter of Mar. 8, came in today, the first since the tenth of March. Things are going well here, there isn't much change running around the country on problems in the day time and going to a movie or dance at night if I don't stay in and write. I think I'll take a course in machine shop work or mechanics when I get back, but I'll still learn to fly someday. The weather is getting very nice now and the sun is beginning to shine a lot of the time now.
You were right about Peggy but I hadn't said much to her about it before I left. I figured she would understand thou. I would like to have a '44 Echo, especially if it has my picture in it "arf arf" It'll have a lot of things I'd like to see. I didn't drop my insurance. I think my other requests will take care of the nuts and candy. I had a letter from Marion and Allen last week. I've had two letters from Louise and ans. Them, I have one of her pictures. I suppose she'll be glad to get back to Clfld. There is a Leigey and a Maines over here that are from Clfd. Leigey used to buddy with Ken and I guess he knows Louise. I rec'd Bucky's Photo and I'll send you Chester's address in my next letter.
Well I suppose Gretchen and Ernest are just as bad as ever, you want to use a big board on them lots so they'll grow good. I'd better close now and I'll write again on Sun.
P.S. Churchill and Eisenhower reviewed us the other day and Churchill gave a little talk.
