Transcription:
Sept. 16, 1942/Dear Miss Breed,/Received the surprise pkg yesterday late in the afternoon. The chocolates just wilted when the box was opened 'cuz it was 110 inside the barracks. Wilted or not they were really welcome. I passed it out among our neighbors as they (the chocolate) wouldn't keep as the afternoons are getting hotter. However to compensate the morns are colder. brrrrr Had a wonderful sunrise this morning 'cuz there were clouds low on the horizon that turned golden from the rays of the sun. Otherwise the Dust Heat etc. are the same. /Sincerely/Ted./My regards to your mother and Miss McNarry./P.S. Your card came just as I was about to mail this card TH
