21 August 54

Dear Dick & Dad:

Its a good thing that you dont hold your breath until I write! But I do try to get in a few. By the time I write Lois & the kids I’m usually written out.

I have been flying a lot during the last few weeks. Nearly all in jets. Dont fly the C-47 much anymore.

It has been unbearably hot since the 1st of August. I cooled off a little yesterday, but it is back at it again today. We had a hurricane called “Grace” that tore up southern Japan several days ago. It just barely reached here with light winds, so may be it will change the weather.

Lois wrote that she and the kids had a fine time in Canada and a good trip home. I want to thank you again for giving them a vacation.

When do you plan to come back to Westerville? You may have told me, but I forget. Really, I guess the best time of the year is in the fall. I would enjoy it the most. Hunting

and fishing would certainly be better then.

Is everything going all right? I wonder if it is. I mean if you & Dad are both OK?

I dont have any real news, but I wanted to write a line. Havent had a letter from you for a while, but guess I owe you one.

Take care of yourselves

Love
Bill
