November 8, 1943

From: Pvt. Geo. F. Gleasure, 31157709, Co. E 12th Inf. A.P.O.#4 U.S. Army, Camp Gordon Johnston, FL
To: Mr. Frank Gleasure, 56 Gardner Street, Allston, Mass. (Boston)


Dear Pa: - 

Received your letter today also one from Martha, she tells me that she is going for a physical to work at the Navy Yard but I doubt if she will pass because those tests are pretty stiff. 

It did take that registered letter about a week to get here but thats the best way to spend money into this place because if it had been a money order Id had to go one hundred and thirty miles to cash it so a few days delay isnt much as long as it gets here. The newspapers didnt arive till three days later & that is due to very poor railroad sceduals down here. The railroads here have the best of engines & cars but the speed is [???]. 

We have had a couple of days of rain here & its pretty cold & we had to go for swimming lessons today but the air was too cold for us to stay very long so we got out of the water after we had all turned blue from the cold & you can bet that they wont get me in there again when its cold. Well this is all the news from here so till I hear from you again Ill close
