I received another copy of the "Hoover Rail." I appreciate it very much. I
failed to write you last month, but I suro thank for the sewing kit. It v;ill
come in handy. That thread reminds me of the old Dye house, where we used to dye
so much like it. I wish I was back there.
Vfcll I had better stop for this time. Luck to all of you,

Finally received my March edition of the Hoover Rail, Gegan to think I wasn*t
going to get it. All the boys over here from home really look forward to it each
J,S,Lattimore, Hugh Morrison, Ed Hawkins and myself are all in the game out
fit and everytime one of us see the others the question is "when did you last re
ceive the "Hoover Rail"? They are getting later v;ith each issue. The picture of
"Lefty", Sam and "Mon" on the cover really brings back o3.d'and pleasant memories,
I have- one thing that I would like to ask of you, and, that is to include,
if possible, the local sports.
V/e have been in New Guinea now for sometime and nil of the boys are getting
along sv;ell. This country will really make you appreciate those nice, cool days
back there, even the hottest day during the summer.
