Dear Mother and Dad:
Ill dash you off a letter and eat. I awoke late this morning and have written a ream of letters.
It is still cool here. The wind is always blowing. I wont know how to fly in calm weather when it comes, if it does.
The flying is coming along O.K. I have 5 hours 40 min. now. I will probably solo when I get about 10 hours. It is so strict now that Ill be lucky to get through. If I should happen to wash out, Ill call Lois and have her come down for a short visit, as I will
probably go overseas right away. If I don’t, then you folks can come down and bring K W and Susie. Do you think that would be okay? If everything goes as planned, you all will be coming out about July 1st.
No news of any importance so I’ll close.
All my love
