Dear Mother, Dad, + Mary:
  
Received your most welcome manuscript today and glad to hear that you are all well & happy as this leaves me at present. Got a letter from Alice & one from Bertha today. Bertha is good for a letter every other day sometimes every day. Air mail also. I am sending you one paragraph. Not many like her, maybe not any. What do you say.

Well, the groceries are just as bad as ever but I can put up with it another month. Last night (Sunday) we had sausage, beans & canned tomatoes. This morning we had a green orange and some kind of cooked up ground meat. One guy kicked about it and they told him to get a blonde and cry on her shoulder or go home & tell his mother. Then every one gave him the laugh. Forks & knives are dirty also and we have lemon pudding twice a week which reminds me of Als. I laugh when I think of it. Join in with me.

They were doing some formation flying for the movies yesterday.  About 50 planes and it sure was a beautiful sight.  We have our parade here on Saturday morning.  We march out on the field between the planes & then we march in review.  A guy wishes he was over fighting then.  I got a 90% instead of 88 & the instructor marked something wrong that was right.  Thats the best mark I got since I was in the Catholic school.  I sure take an interest in this.

Thebo is lucky he is getting so much training.  They've got some wonderful equipment here for us guys so I guess they think with that we don't need too much training.

I answered Mrs. Budd's letter about two weeks ago.  I also answered Olson's letter.  He don't write but 10 words.  I guess he's going to be a flyer.

Well, I guess I'll have to cut this short as I have some more letters & some studying to do.  Hoping you are keeping your teeth cleaned etc.  I remain
