March 5, 1943
Things have been pretty busy for me the last few days, as my second ward got filled up in a hurry and I was temporarily swamped. Have had a few interesting cases, including a meningococcus meningitis, a couple of peptic ulcers, some bronchopneumonias, a true lobar and a probably encephalitis. So, you can see that there has been plenty to keep me going these few days. Outside of working in the ward I have done nothing else except play bridge at night.
We have had some pretty good meals lately – some nice chicken and some roast beef. Of course, we in Supply have continued to be in good with the non-coms of the Mess Supply Department, and as a consequence we have been able to have late evening snacks besides our usual three per day. One of our boys is quite a good amateur cook and he has kept Ken, George, Lois and me well satisfied around 10-11 P.M. We get such things as toasted roast beef sandwiches, toasted canned chicken sandwiches, fried chicken on the wing and leg, etc. Not bad, eh.
Loads of love,
Watch for my next letter
