All well with me. For the past few days (time has lost all meaning) we have been busy as the devil and running on about a
20 hour day. The set-up for us has been very satisfactory indeed and we have managed to turn out a lot of work. Arnie has
been swell to me - alternating cases - so I have had a colossal amount of big stuff to do - heads, chests, bellies, and extremities.
Manage to find plenty to eat - all canned & dehydrated stuff. So far - and today, believe it or not, finally managed a
sponge bath & shave, & changed my clothes - first time in weeks.
Also today my bedding roll finally arrived, with it my air mattress, bed, radio, etc. Perhaps I can tune in on a news broadcast
and find out what's going on in this war. Nobody knows as little about it as those on the spot. Also, can make my foxhole
I was happy at my reaction to my early experiences here, and from now on, I will at least not have myself to fear. Some of
the lads have not been so fortunate.
The enclosed is a scrap of American parachute which one of my patients gave me the first day. I thought Hen and Edie might
like a piece of it.
Must hurry to eat & get to work again. Had 3 hours sleep today so certainly don't need any of that.
