Dear Mr'. Osborne:
I h."'vc just fxniahed rerding ny first copy of your "Hoover Rail" and I think
it is the best I have seen yet. I have shown it to all the boys in the barracks
and it showr: up papera ’froa all parts of the country.
I Ov3peciaily liked tlie letter fron the ''Mothej;* of the Month" this one having
been written by Mrs. Bax'ns, inr.’ces it even raore interecting, as she is toown and
loved b3»- so r.'ir.ny boys throughout the United States, at this tirao.

I have just finished reading ycur little paper and I certainly enjoyed it.
I thinl: its a swell idea j^’cu have, in letting us know wh-:.t you are doing back
hone, sincc we left, for that is always of great intei-cst to us.
You said you \vc.u.ld like to kn^n •.•h.at v.'c have been doing since entering the
service - as for nyself - I've been in school for th^ past two nonbhs. It hf.s
been a long wjjiding road - this learning to be an airplr-r.e nechanic, Uo were
puzzled at first by the various mechanisms bat thrrurh constant adaption of our
'wocik' brains, v;c managed to understam' thciT' functions, and now, the end of the
road is in sight. Our class will graduate about the 12th of January. I don't
think any of us will be scrry to leave although vio have had some good times here
at school .'jad wo *13. niss then ivhen we-re gone.
L>..t me vdsl' y^^u oil now, the best and merriest Christirr.s over, and bigger
and better things in this Ne\; Year to come.
