September 12, 1943

From: Pvt. Geo. Gleasure 311577098, CoE 12th Inf. Reg. A.P.O. #4, 4th Infantry Division, U.S. Army, Fort Dix, N.J.
To: Mr. Frank Gleasure, 56 Gardner Street, Allston Mass. (Boston)

Dear Pa:-

Received your letter about three days ago & haven't had the chance to answer untill now.  It's getting pretty cold around here now & they tell me that Pennsylvania & Jersey weather is the coldest there is on the coast.  I hope that we don't have to make that move to the South because I hate that damn place, one winter down there is enough I'd rather stay up here & freeze.  I received all letters and newspapers up to date so far.  How is Martha after her collapse?  If you ask me, I think there is something shady about that one she was with.  We had a big fire in the Pennsylvania Railroad station here last night & from what I hear the place is a wreck & it's a big place like the South Station.  They have been having quite a few train wrecks & now this fire, it looks to me like somebody's dirty work.  How is Jimmy doing at the engine house & how did he make out with the navy?  he said something about signing up.  I can't seem to think of anymore news to write up so till I hear from you again, I'll close.
