Letter # 33

Somewhere in France
March 16th, '45

Dear Martha and Folks

Weather sez warm & the sun looks down with unclouded brow.

You ask, "how do the people dress here?"   Differently from there, but also differently from each other.  Men go in for boots if they can get them.  Otherwise they tie their pants-legs-bottoms.  And with this mud, it's not hard to see why.  But among us, it's surprising how we all like to wear about the same kind of clothes.  Most of the fellows wear - clothes - in fact, all of them do.  Was going to start saying something else, but ---- Well - so much for style reporting.

Am still on good terms with health.

But I see this letter is rapidly getting nowhere, so why continue this nowhere trend?

Will write more later.

And hope to hear from you-all again soon ("you-all" here meaning "all of you" & NOT "Southernese").

Best of regards.
