Dec 20, 1944
Seems in every paper you pick up there are pictures of french girls with there arm around American kissing them.
Well this is about the best I could do. (Not she the wooden shoes in French they are called “sabos”) This picture was taken on of the first days in France. You will note we caught n quickly to the fad of wearing handkerchiefs. (Besides it kept your collar clean.) the one I am wearing in this picture and [unreadable] I shipping home as it beginning to fade and I want to save it as its all written in French.
Received a package tonight and it had my white [unreadable] slippers in it boy they looked in good shape you did a good job on them Mom. Think we’ll have some cheese and crackers to night. The reason I don’t request anything any more is because we now have everything and the only thing I can think of is another pair of gloves and some heavy socks.
Love as always,
