Couldn't pass it if I tried

Dear Mom

Well, I'm sorry I haven't written before the but you know how it is just can't stand to write letter.
This (?) place down here is a real zoo you wouldn't believe it. I've been going down to washington D.C. a lot. Not much to do anywhere around here. anymore I'm going to try to home for a week in august. Don't when for sure --- yet but will let you know. I'll try to get down for a few days.
You probably heard that Jane (?) had a baby girl. It was tiny (?) but I guess it will be O.K. and all.
Have you heard anything about my driver's license? I had them change the address for down there. If it came in please send it to me cause I need it. If it hasn't come in would you see if you can get me a temporary license or find out what happened to it. I put in the stub from the money order I used my maybe that will help. I sure would hate to have to take a road test again. couldn't pass it if I tried.
Well thats about all the news from down here not much more to say
