glad to see him. Well Mr. Dorsey I want you to keep sending the speedometer, because it
has some very interesting things in it. It keeps you in touch with the boys. Mr. Dorsey I
found out an interesting thing when we got here. The people at home don’t know how
lucky they are about the Rationing. Because everything is rationed here. Well tell all I
said hello as I will write more later. So until then. Ans soon
