Dear May, Bill & Joanie
Received Bill's letter the other day and I was indeed glad to hear from you all again. Of course the letter was dated February 10th. A little late, I guess, however it was good hearing from you again.
In a way I was glad to hear that you chose to reside in N.J. instead of going out to California. It may appear selfish of me when I say if I ever get home, it will be nice to see you in N.J. And if you had been living in the Pacific Coast it might have been a little different.
However, all I desire is to finish off the dreadful business of warfare and return home to you soon in the near future. Regards and love to Joan.
Your Devoted Brother,
