Dear Relatives:

Just scribbling a few lines to tell you to send me 7 or 8 of my white handkerchiefs. I’ve got a cold and they only gave us four handkerchiefs. It was warmer here today than its been any day up in Hoton but I'm not kicking. We are still processing. This will take about seven days. Tell me how everybody and everything is up there and forward my mail. I figure I should have a letter up there. Hoping my kerchiefs will get here soon, I am obliged as ever Your loving Son, Bill P.S. I am enjoying this life so far.
