Dear Folks,

Just finished a letter to Paulson. Doubt if he'd get it by the 29th but it doesn't matter.

Had the day off today. Spent most of the day just sitting around the hooch listening to music. Got dressed a couple times to go eat chow and that was it.

Those pictures I was expecting didn't come. I did get a couple letters.

Somebody got a care package from some church in Wisconsin. It had about 50 packets in it of all odds and ends like cookies and chewing gum. Each had it's own little bible verse. I enclosed one.

Wish there was something to write about but this place is dead. Oh, yes. The First Sgt. got drunk and came in here to ask for a cigarette. That was the high point of the day.

I think I'll try to get burm detail tomorrow. The time goes faster out there. 119 DTG.
