May 5th [1943?]

Dear Dick-

Four weeks ago I left. – with hopes high only to be dissappointed. Just received your letter of the 2nd but none from Bill- Haven’t heard from him for two days- He’s awfully busy I know as they have piled all sorts of responsabilities on him.

I have received two calls from friends of his that have flown in from Moses Lake. His address is-

301 Service Group
Moses Lake Army Air Base
Moses Lake, Wash.

He may get back for a day or two this week- I only hope so

I went to Club with my neighbor last nite. Played pinocle & had a good time.

Sent you a little gift for Mother’s Day which I hope you like – Would like to see both of my mothers Sunday but guess that is impossible so will just send Best Wishes for the day. Evelyn is having a good time at Aunt Juanitas. She bought Eve a dress – $22.95. O.K. I guess-guess I’ll go visit her too.

The weather is nice again but cool at nights. Sue had a little cold which I hope gets better soon.

My girl from the N.Y.A. took care of the children again last

without accident for a change. First time I had her she spilled ink on my table cloth- second time broke the baby’s bottle. – Maybe she was jinxed. – Must get asway to clean house as my land lady is coming for the rent today – Hope to see you soon.

Love
Lois
