Matzenback, Germ.

My darling:

One of the boys from the 489th came over today and brought me a lot of mail. It really seemed good too. But tonight honey I’m not going to try to answer your questions on any of your remarks.

Enclosed you will find a $100.00 money order - to be put in the saving acct - that should make us $1,500.00 in that. Not bad is it honey. Wish we had ten times that much. The reason I said savings was to get in an even amount. Also honey I was not paid for July so I’ll have plenty coming at the end of this month, so I’ll probably be sending you some more. Honey we aren’t doing too bad financial now are we Janey.

It rained again today. The first good day I’m going to go out and see what I can find to do. Shelton runs his battery a lot different than I been use to and therefore will make some changes when he leaves. All day today we stayed in the house and just looked at each other. We did play a fun game of hearts. They are playing hearts right now, only I got out, and I’m going to bed.

There are two officers in this battery a Captain White, who is a lawyer and a Lieutenant Merritt a Ohio State Graduate in accounting. So the three of us have quite a time together.

Well honey that's all for tonight.

All my love

Jack

Let me know if you get the money order.
