Camp Kilmer, New Jersey

Dear Folksies,

       On the night of the 18th, there was a dance given by an outfit next door to us and it would have been lots better if the hall hadn’t been so hot. How the Col. was able to dance every dance when most of us were in a lather after one dance, we do not know.

       Yesterday was a rather nice day – not too darn hot. We loafed and played volleyball most of the day.

       Last night the gals gave a dance for the officers – only about half the bunch were there as Group I was allowed their 24 hr. leave beginning yesterday. Our Group goes off at 5:30 P.M. this afternoon. Plans still a little indefinite.

                    Loads of love,

rene-transparent
