-L'^--r Mr, Parker & Fitz & Morris & Chas, & Effie: ” I suppose you boys, are busy these daj'-s trading cans of soup for i/upons in between f’isciissions of war strategy - Make it good. It has been almost three months since I left the states and believe mo it seems .that and more. Had a nice crossing but was glad to get my feet on terra firma even the it v:asn't so firm in places, wc seem to be out of the woods here now, tho, but I am sure Sherman taow nothing xvhen ho made the frjnous quotation in comparison to what some of the boys h^.ve. I think Jiiamie S and Hugh Morrison are here somewhere. The boys are taking it fine. They got plenty of cigarettcs and food. ViTrite all the boys you know over here, you v/ill help them more than you think. . ' . - My regards to all the boys ^nd best of luck. Doc. Capt. Fred Falls c/o Postmaster, San Francisco, California 4;- 4:- 4:- -j;- Dear Jim: Just a few lines to let you know I enjoy reading the Hoover PJail. The boys here in the communication section also enjoy reading it. This paper you all are sending the boys in the service, is a very good tracer for us, Vfc can keep track of v.'ho get furloughs, and \vhero' our friends are stationed. I kncvf the boys you mentioned being at home in Lawndale, on leave, really enjoyed their t'tay. I vfill closc nov;, hoping to see you folks some day before long. I am still out here in tho Southv;est Pacific. I have been on many different islands since I came over seas. Pvt. Ralph G. McMurry c/o Postmaster, San Francisco, California * -j;- Llr, Osborne: Received the "Hoover Rail" yesterday. It was my first paper from the County since I arrived in Australia. Naturally that made it more appreciated than ever. I have seen and road quite a fcv/ community papers, but sincerely speaking, I think without doubt, the "Hoover Rc-.il" is the best I've seen or read anywhere. Its very qasy to sec that j'-cu all have given it considerable attention, to gather news we fell ows in servicc, both home and overseas, like to hoar about. I'm sure if all the other fellows enjoyed it as much as I did, you idll keep rif'ht on printing it and eventually you will have a young Charlotte Observer rirht at our back door. I noticed Mr. Hart mentioned he v/as pinch-hitting for you, due to your illness. I'm awful sorry to hear this, but I do hope its nothing serious. I suppose you have heard right much about Australia, there are a number of Lawn dale boys in this area. It’s really swell do;vn here and most of all, we Yanks like it here very much. Tho "Aussies" try to make our stay here as'pleasant as possible, but it's still nothing like good old Cleveland County. However, there are some very att ractive young ladies down here, which helps out my buddies right much - it's a shame I never took to girls. This is about all the time I hr?ve at the present. Thanks again and again for sending me the "Hoover Rail", I enjoyed it so much. Please give my best regards to any of my frjiiily and friends you might see, Srt, Bob Weathers c/o Postmaster, San Francisco, California
