Slept rather late today. Slept until 10 then had to set our watches ahead one hour. Had coffee for breakfast & then at 1:30 ate dinner in the diner. Had veal steak & it cost $1.00. After lunch we played CA-Dunk until 6:30 then I gave up 75¢ out. We, Freddie & I, are going to eat dinner in Fort Worth. We had a nice mexican dinner & took in the town. All soldiers have to be off the streets by 11:30. I went back to the depot & wrote several cards, Then was in bed by 12:30.

Slept until 10:30 this morning. Ate & got my rations & then built a fire in the laundry tubs & at 4:30 ate supper & then came back & done my laundry. Had quite a washing. The service group boys that stay in the other end of the barracks wanted me to go to town with them. We left at 7:00 & had quite a time. Went to Wellingborough. Made three pubs & had a lot of fun. Was back in the barracks by 12:00. I called my outfit today & they said they would bring my money & mail up tomorrow morning. God I hope so. I can’t stand this much longer. I wanted to cable Mary money for our wedding anniversary. Hope it don’t get there too late.
