My dear Mother and sister,
I received your letter the other day bawling me out for not writing often and, honest Mother, I thought I was doing fine considering how I like writing letters but you must forgive me for not answering your letter sooner.
Friday I had no time as you know and then on Saturday the wife was up and you can bet I had no time that day and on Sunday Elliott was up and I was fairly busy that day. So this is Monday noon. I am trying to get it away although I haven’t much time to do it.
Say Mother you should have been in camp on Friday as it was some sight. If we ever have a review again you want to try to get here as it is a sight not likely to be ever seen again and I am sure you would like it.
Jim and I both put in for a pass for the week and we will phone you if it goes through.
