Dear Margie, Its about time somebody up there wrote but I don't blame you all because I didn't write much myself. Well it looks like the Army has got all of A.O. I guess I'll have to get discharged & come back to work. How about sending some of the boys' addresses in your next letter. I just got back from a 3 day pass in Phoenix & I like it better than any place I've ever seen. Even KY. Some of these days I'm going to live there I'm going to live there I hope. Yeah, I remember Barney's last party. I was one drunk " " I got home & so was back. Do you ever hear from him? I heard from him once when I was at Camp Robinson & thats all. Will to tell you the truth I don't know what marjorie's doing

I haven't heard from her for a good while now the must have find me. Can't blame her I guess I met an awful nice gal in Phoenix & had a pretty good time with her. Went bicycle riding to a park one nite & that was really OK. Know about writing everyday as I like to get letters & I'm answering all I get as soon as I get them so start writing & see if I don't. How is Betty? Tell her to write to all the boys "hello" for me, You ought to be out in the desert here. Its really nice if you like it but I don't. Well, I guess I'd better answer the rest of my mail now.
So long, start writing Private Joe Taylor (Esquire)
P.S. Its a good thing I answered your letter this morning because I have to box this afternoon & I might not have been able.
