July 4

   The fourth of July and so different from

any others – no firecrackers and no gas

to go pleasure driving, but war is war

and hell and what can you do about


   I stayed in bed till just before

dinner today and felt beautifully

luxurious all the while. Joanie came

up this afternoon and stayed till

evening. We talked and looked

through old snapshots again. It’s

such fun to reminisce and to hopefully

look forward to the future. Gad it’ll

be wonderful when the war is over – if

we’ve won.

   Surprising event occurred when the

phone rang and it was Bill Brennan

calling long distance. He’s coming home

for a few hours next weekend. I’m awfully

glad and my interest is perking up.

   Louise called & I wrote Beth.
