Dearest Mama received your most welcome letter to day. I am well and hope this will find you and Papa and the girls well. It was certainly bad about Orean Means a dying. There has been a lot of sickness here but it is getting to where there is not so much now. Although we are still under quaranteened. I don’t know for how long but hope not very long. There shore is a lot of sickness at San Francisco now. I was just talking to Cody and Ragan they are all right .
I hope I will get to make a boat as quick as the quarantine is raised. I haven’t heard from Rex for some time I thought maybe he was sick but glad that he is not. Will write him again. I don’t know you haven’t been getting my letters for I have been writing a mood many. Yes I guess there is several of the boys in France wish I were over there too. Altho the Navy life is fine. Well I must ring off as I don’t know nothing to write soon your loving Son, Alfred N. Green
