Dear Margie Well! Yes? Received your letter this evening and if possible I will attempt to write you a second one. After the way I started it out it does not seem likely I will do a good job but I will try my best. I seemed to make a mess out of your address on the first letter. I came to that conclusion after seeing Buttermilk was a Pike not a Road. and when did they change it and put you in Erlanger? They did not ask me if they could do it and besides that why should they?
You were right about this walking hurting my legs but it is also not very good on the other fellows. But like everything else we just have to get use to it and no doubt we will. We have got use to everything else so why not this. I have had this trouble with my foot before so it is nothing new but it never hung on as it is doing at present. I should have taken it easier when a civilian and I would not have the trouble I am having now. I received a letter from brother Jim earlier this week. He is at present at Fort Eustis, Virginia but expecting to be moved at anytime. He does not know whether they are going to ship them across or if they are going to snd them to Camp Courder. He is at Eustis for maneuvers and also practical training on different weapons of the heaving caliber, such as anti aircraft, anti-tank and field howitzers

<div align=left> <center> ( 2 ) </center><br> I got occasional letters from Emma Marie, Pat and Lima. Ruth arens writes abot twice a week and Betty? Well we still correspond with me doing most of the writing. It is a fifty-fifty proposition, that is, I do almost all of the writing and she does almost all of the recieving. But seriously her letters to me depend on how busy she is and it is just about the same way on this end. I do recieve semi monthly letters and that is one hundred percent better than not hearing from her at all. I do not mind in the least infrequent letters for the ones I do recieve from her are really something. Now don't get me wrong it is strictly fluent English and no no mush in any form goes into the make-up of the letter, All of the boys I bummed around with are now in the Army or other branches of service but I never hear from them. At odd times I do get a letter or card from one of them or the other but as a whole I can say I do not hear from them. I do not mind one hit if you ask questions nad I don't think you nosey either. If you did not ask questions it could not be the old margie that lived in montaque. Or would you rather forget these days? What wonderful and non-sensual days they were, they were they were anything but peaceful they still were great days. Well margie, there is rather sean news and happenings to relate at this writing but I will have more the next time. Give my regards to the family. Hoping you are all well. So until the next time I take my leave. <br> <div align=right>as ever<br> Johny</div><br> </div>
