I am well, happy and safe and I hope you all are the same.
I took my first bath in a bathtub yesterday since I left home. The water was so hot that my feet are still blistered, but boy, it felt good.
Spring fever sure has caught up with me now. I can barely get up enough energy to hold the pen.
I never met up with either of the Joes, but if I had their addresses, I would have guaranteed to see them. As a matter of fact, I haven’t seen anyone from home yet for various reasons.
In your next letter, send me Vince’s address. I haven’t heard from him in a long time. The last I heard from him, he was at Cornell.
That’s about all I have to say, so I’ll be signing off now. Give my love to all including Rosemarie and Spring Street.
Love and kisses,
