Dear sister Madaline
I hardly think this letter is going to be very long as time is limited and I feel that I am neglecting you if I do not write theirfore I am doing my duty and also keeping my promise. Our training is still going on but in a hiking manner. Our name hiking 105 is still with us and much credit must be given us as we certainly do do some hiking. I am feeling fine and also am having a wonderful time. Today was a day of rest but just the same I’ve been on the go washing clothes and taking a bath. I surely enjoy the bath as it was the first good wash since I left the states. Guess I will close now dear sister with love and kisses to you all.
