Message reads, Dear Friends.
Just a line to say I received your letter 6.12 and was very pleased to hear from you. Well it seems very quiet here now without you all but it was for the best as it will be a lot more Healthy out there and you can get down to business. Well give my very best respects to the 2 Marys. I shall always remember you all for I got so attached to you all and may the War soon end so we can resume our normal way of living.
Good night and God bless you.
