Dear Mr. Miller:
Just a few lines to say “hello” and
to let you know that I am well and
getting along just fine. I hope this will
find you and all my old friends there

you my change of address is because
until now I have been on the go so
much from one place to another that
I didn’t know from one day to the
next when I would change again. Now
I am in this new outfit that is just
beginning to set up operations and I am
sure that I will remain with this outfit
until I am discharged which is only 11
Until then, 1 would like very much
to receive the MILL WHISTLE if the
Company is still sending it out to ser
Looking forward to being back with
the Company and my old friends.
