Rec'd Feb. 9/45
Nov. 2, 1944. Dear Mom - Yesterday I rec'd your letters of Aug. 20, 10, 28 and Sept 3 and 22. Glad to hear Brenda, Linda and Bob had got out to see you , I'll bet you had a swell time. Also glad to hear Chick got home alright. I think I forgot to tell Brenda that the picture of her, Bob and Linda send June 14 arrived a couple of weeks ago. I was told today that there is a cigarette parcel in for me, but will not collect until tomorrow. May personal has not turned up yet but parcels generally have been held up. Contents of Aug. parcel sound good, especially underwear. As you surmised, I still have cakes of tooth paste so am not deficient in that respect. In the moving, everyone was separated, so am not with the same bunch as formerly. All of us are in the best of spirits, never more so, in fact. Give my love to Brenda, Linda, Bob and Jim. Lots of love, Syd.
