Dear Mom + Pop
I sure hope that by now you have received some word from Manny. I believe there was very strict censorship concerning where he is, and the mail was held up on account of it. That happens very often. I write him every week and I’m sure I’ve get a bunch of mail from him on the way.
Mom, those socks should come in hand. I’ve got enough now but they wear out easy and sometimes they're hard to replace. I filled out some and I’ve got dimples. Ain’t that cute??
Pop, are you keeping track of the Russians? They’ll be in Berlin by the time you get this I’m in sound health. Don’t worry about a thing.
Your loving son,
