Sept 3, 1942
My old boy,
How's every little thing. Apparently that was all you could say on Saturday & Sunday & so I am giving it back to you square in the teeth. Hope you caught it or it is rather messy when missed.
Well how is the dive bombing progressing or haven't you been doing any lately? I guess you can afford to get tight only once a week. Poor boy!!! You don't know what you're missing. You should really make a daily habit of it as it is quite a bracer. Course you stomach may not used to it like my but don't worry it will. Don't despair!
[?], here I am suppose to be congratulating you & I talk on morals instead. Isn't it awful?
Anyway I think its swell of you kids to go through as you did & I want to wish you the best of everything including stomachs.
