Dear Dad,

Still pretty slow at writing letters, aren't I? As to where I am, well of course that's a great big secret, in fact I don't even know where the hell I am. Been slowly getting over my seasickness, almost feel like a sailor. Vince and Bob won't have too much over on me as there's plenty of salt in me. What's the latest news around town? Have you heard from Vince or Bob lately? Boy, I sure could stand one of those shots we had that day when Mr. Thomas was over, remember? By the way, did they hear anything about Bill? How's Mom and all the kids? Say hello for me, will you Dad? Have a heck of a lot to tell you but I can't. When I get back home and soon (I hope), we'll have a good old bull session, with whiskey, OK? Running out of space, have to sign off.
