I really mean started too, because I've really done so much in this past three or four days that it hasn't even been funny (Boy this ink is lousy).

It's really hard to know just where to start-better get rid of the unimportant stuff first. You remember I mentioned something about running in the Defense subject? Well the last day out, Friday, we had the 7-mile event and tomorrow we're out all day.

Leave Quebec City and get into Toronto around 7:30 the next morning, and then would have to leave again about 4 Sunday afternoon getting in here at 6 A.M. There is only one drawback to the whole thing. You leave Montreal at 11:45, and have to sit up all the time on cars exactly the same as go up home, so you can imagine just how

I feel today as I traveled the last part of my journey on it last night.
