You will see from this that we have a new ribbon for our typewriter!
This is just a line between pay vouchers to tell you that Lt. Harris approved of my furlough this morning and it will be for ten days starting October 6th. I changed my mind on the 13th of October because Granfield is going the 6th and we can ride to Pittsburgh to-gether. Naturally at the moment I’m in a very happy frame of mind!
Your card, mailed from Pittsburgh, came this noon. Thanks very much.
Nothing has happened since you left but I have been moderately busy. Both Tuesday and Thursday I went from nine until five without break but I wasn’t rushed nevertheless.
Enclosed print is very good I think – thought you might like to show it to your ma & pa.
I hope you are having a mighty swell time. We miss you, especially for the afternoon beer. Horror of horrors, the PX was closed yesterday but we are swetting it out this P.M.
See you later.
