Transcription:
Apr ?16 1942/Dear Miss Breed,/No sooner than I had mailed a letter to you I received your "fat" one. So you may disregard some of my requests. I find that I had not included information that we are eating in mess halls that seat anywhere from 750 to 5000 (Mess Hall #2) We have electrical facilities but no gas./Apr. ?17 1942/Everyday is so much alike that I have trouble remembering the date. I received your parcel post packages late yesterday afternoon. It rained last night "something terrific" as some of the fellows say. The mountains are shrouded in clouds. I still can't seem tofind my wolf's clothing so I am still alone as far as feminine companionship is concerned/Ted
