Hello Mr Dorsey;
Well here I am again, after so long a time. Well how is dear old Speed getting along? I hear there nothing but girls there now. Boy I wish you could send some of them over here, because I haven’t spoken to a girl since Dec, and only seen a couple. Well I have a new APO no 706, but I wish I was back at the other place. Here we use the ditch in front of our tent for a place to take a bath and at night you can’t sleep for the artillery going off, and not including the bugs, mosquitoes, and everything else. I have seen some of the biggest flies I ever seen in my life. They are all colors. Aren’t you send the paper anymore. If so I haven’t received any for a long while. Well tell every body I said hello.
