Dear Ed:
  I thought it was about time for me to drop you a few lines.  I have been receiving the News regularly every week, and I sure am glad to hear what is going on in good old Iowa.  The Iowa weather sure has this Missouri mud state all beat to blazes.  This camp where I'm stationed is pretty well out in the sticks.  But I don't think we should complain about anything.  We should consider ourselves lucky by what we read in the papers, and hear over the air, what our buddies are going through.  I wish to thank all my friends for their Xmas greetings they sent me.  I would like to thank each and every one of them personally, but I'm afraid that I'll never get around to that.  We are kinda short of manpower in this outfit, so we have to spend most of our time working, so that don't leave much time for writing letters. 
  Well I guess I'd better close my so called letter.  Thanks again, and may God bless you one and all.
Your friend,
Pvt. Henry Coulander
