Last evening, downtown, I saw a few
show, [shows], at the Y.M.C.A. The show was put
on by sailors. The title was "Trouble Makers."
The principle part was about a man who
was starting a show and wanted to hire orators.
His office boy was a, [[inserted above]: a]], niger and was supposed
to answer all door calls. The niger gave his
employer and friends much trouble by
kicking them out. It was the best and funniest
show I have seen for a long time.

Yes, I certainly would like to have been
at that social you were writing about, but
as it is impossible, I must imagine I
have been there and had a real good time.

No, you did not ask me in your, [[inserted above]: letter]], before
your last one how long I had got to serve.
I still have five months to serve. Am
supposed to get discharged the fifth of June.
Time cannot fly to, [too], fast for me as I am
anxious to become a civilian again.

As ever a friend,
