‘Next Time You Send a Package, Put Chicken Noodle Soup in It’

I don't have any idea what the typewriter Babe mailed looked like. This is just an illustration!

This letter is undated; it is postmarked Sept. 6, 1944. Given the content, which mentions not having received any packages, it’s very likely this letter was written before the one that I last transcribed.

Dear Folks,

I am well, happy and safe and I hope you all are the same.

I’ve sent the typewriter on its merry way and to tell you the truth, I don’t think it will ever reach you. Someone along the way will think they want it more than I do.

It seems strange for me to be writing this letter out because I have become so unused to writing. My hand is tired already and you can see what little I’ve written.

I haven’t received any more packages yet, but I’m expecting them any day now. Next time you send a package, put some chicken noodle soup in it.

Love & Kisses,

Babe
