My vaccination is taking. Arms still hurt. Well at last we left Fort MacArthur. Left 9:30 arrived at PE station 11:00. Arrived at Vitagraph at 11:45, ate, had our bunks issued and learned to make our bed their way. Took care of our clothes the rest of the day. Called wife & was it good to hear her voice. She’s coming over to see me tonite. Have to talk across fence.

Got up late but made breakfast. Went to 11:00 mass & then after dinner went over to the orphanage and arranged for Ronnie’s party. Chaplain Muller & RC Director Welsh went with me. The sisters were really enthused about it. I know we will have a good time. After I came back I drove over to Marks Hall for the mail and then back to eat. After supper we went up to the Red Cross & had cokes and read a while. It rained like hell during the nite & we almost got washed away. Went to bed at 9:30.
