Dear Joe,

Thank you very much for your letters.

How are the measles treating you? Pretty ichy aren't they?

We're all healthy and hope that you'll get well fast.

Gosh, maybe it is a good thing that you got the measles! Maybe you won't get to go overseas as fast as you think. At least I hope not.

We went over to the office and had them help us with the dependency forms. They sent it to New Jersey and we got one of those new authorization slips for the family allowance. They sent that new authorization slip duplicate today. We also have a duplicate of the original form. Oh yes, the government sent us a certificate for your insurance, too. Everything is running along fine, mean about your dependency & insurance things. Don't worry because it's okay.

I hope you got the letter about our relocation problem. We haven't heard from Mr. Boulton so far. I wonder how the Affoulters will react. If they cause trouble for us, we'll never be able to go home. Well, as far as we're concerned we hope to get to go back in July if it's possible. Has Mr. Boulton said anything to you yet?

Joe, Mr. Odahara said that he read in the paper a couple of weeks ago that Johnny Krause died. I don't know if it's true, tho'!

I got a letter from Mack Mayeda today. He sounds like he's all pooped out. It sounded like he said he worked 60 hours a week or something. He told me to tell you to write to him. He moved to another place.

Gosh, it's Good Friday today. We didn't have any school today. Instead of having a couple of weeks for easter vacation we are having one day for easter vacation. That's because we're getting out in May instead of June.

They are having sunrise service at six o'clock by block 32. I hope it isn't cold like last year. I nearly froze out there!

I guess I better close because I don't have anything else to say!

So Long,


P.S. A lot of people are relocating and taking short term leaves. Camp is gradually preparing to go and I think most of the people plan to leave camp in the summer.
