See you all here next week!
I went to church this morning. After that I got the paper and watched TV until dinner. After dinner I watched TV and then went to the barn.
Mrs. Johnson says I've been stealing money again after your letter. Lizzie gave me 5 cents and that's all. I bought 5 cents worth of caramel butterscotch. I don't want to go away from hear at all. I cried awful to. I don't to go away at all. Last night just before Mrs. Johnson came into the barn Anna come up. Mrs. Johnson didn't believe she just come but she did. I wanted to go into the woods and get mayflowers (?) Mrs. Johnson wouldn't let me.

Dear Betty Jean
Received your letter and stamps today and was very glad to hear from you. I am sorry that I haven't written before but it is a long story.
You see I am in a new place now and I have been kept pretty busy getting things organized.
My new home is right in the jungle but still is only about 300 yards from the sea shore. The beach is not much good as it is all coral and if you don't wear something on your feet when you go into the water you cut your feet all to pieces.
We have our area here fixed up pretty nice already. We have lights, showers and even gone as far as to make tables and chairs. Of course it takes time and we all have to work together.
The first think I fone when I got here was to dig a foxhole and boy right now it is the best buddy I have. The Japs paid us a visit a few nights ago.
We have a movie screen only about 25 feet from our tent and they have shows every other night. It's a good thing they have something to keep our morale up.
I had begun to think you folks had forgotten me as I had not heard from you in so long. I haven't heard from Aunt Elgia (?) now in months. I began to think she was mad at me over something.
I don't have much time right now Betty, so guess I will have to write you again when I find time. Thanks for the stamps. Oh say you might as well save your money as I can get them over here now. When it is so I can't get them again I will let you know.
Write soon, I hope you are all fine and say hello to the whole family for me.
Yours truly, George.
Am here at last and having a fine time. Busy every minute and love it. Will try and write a letter letter.
