Dear May & Bill,
Hope you are receiving my mail. I received your last letter several days ago and always as before I was indeed glad to hear from you.
The weather here isn't too bad now especially nites. The cold air of the Pacific blows right up into the Beach, causing such ideal cool nights, but days are still very hot. Received your packages, thanks lots. It arrived quite in tact and the fruitcake was delicious.
How long do you reckon the war will last? Sometimes I keep wondering. Believe me I count the days I'm away from you all. Hope Bill found it easy to become a civilian once again. I think I won't find it hard, since I've got my heart set on it.
Take care of yourselves. Love to Joanie!
Your Devoted Brother
