Dear Sister,
Just a few lines.
I wrote you a few days ago.
I mentioned something about
you taking one of my L Bonds.
I have decided that I will keep
them, for if I ever get out
of this I will have that
much to start on.
Most all the boys that
came here when I did have
gone. There will be a hundred
leave here today. So I may
be called most any time.
I see that men up to 45
will have to register; guess
everybody will be in
this game before it is over.

Well, I think the folks have
decided to stay there until
they gather their crop.
I heard from Della; she is
having a hard time with the
kid.
Well, there is no news from
this place. So in regards
to what I said about the Bonds
I will withdraw the offer,
for I may need them some
day.
Well, I hope this finds each
and all well. Leaves me
o.k.
Answer,
As ever, your
Bro,
Roy
