My Kay:

Hurray! Our mail has just come alongside. I don’t know how many bags we got. We are going to leave this hole tonight thank goodness. I think we are going to Leyte. I’ll know tomorrow.

Hope I get a letter from you. It is only 52 days since I have really heard from you. That was when your last letter was post marked.

Gee I love you.
