My Dears,

I've slighty fallen down on the letter writing job, but I've been so disgusted with the mails here. I seldom get any and I cant believe everyone has dropped correspondence with me so entirely. I've been wondering too if you had had as poor service from me. Pass my letters along to the family as I dont have time to write each each wk.

I still dont know where I shall be assigned to work. I was told the manager of the club here wanted me in his club. They're sending my roommate (Helen Hassley) to the country + she's having a fit and wants to stay here and I'm having a fit to go to the country. I'm still working at the club here tho.

I dont have long hours + have plenty time for myself. I've met lots of nice people an get around quite a bit. I dated a Navy Capt. Sat. [m + e?] + had a wonderful meal aboard his ship. Sun. I went out into the country to an airport + an Army hosp. Yesterday I had a delightful experience- went sailing in a sail boat with a nice "chappie" from Atlanta- (he's a corporal) + went to Davidson. We saw plenty of interesting things too. Tonite I'm invited to a party in an Australian home for an Am. Navy officer. Should be interesting. I get taken to dinner nearly every nite too- so.

I'm enclosing a little picture of myself that they made at the Provost marshalls. I'm really not "garrison goofey" yet- as I so appear in the picture.

Loads of Love to all,

Annie Laurie

Deal Lois & Family, I hope you all had happy birthdays. I was sorry not to be able to remember them, but its simply impossible. Even if I shouldbe able to get something there is a lot of red tape to go thru with the censor etc. Winter is about to be over now & summer here. I dont see how they tell the difference. Flowers bloom in profusions all the time. I imagine it is similar to Jacksonville, Fla. The city itself is about the size of Atlanta.I havent been working hard recently as we're renovating a part of the club & have it closed down, so I'm making good use of the time to have some fun. I went sailing Mon., to a party in an Australian home Tues, and am going out to dinner tonight as well as most every [nite/].

Dearest Mom, I've neglected you a little recently,but have been busy getting adjusted on the newjob. I dont like it here as much as I didthe other place. Its too quiet -not enought todo, but I guess as time goes bye we willhave more fellows and more doing. I'mstill living in an apt. alone, but am movingin with one of the girls I knew inWashington. They have a lovely apt. andI'm sure I'll like it better withsomeone. Last nite I blew a fuse andhad no lights so had to go to bed at7 oclock.

Andy came to see me one night. Wehad fun talking [?] old times. He'sthe only person I've seen that I everknew before. He's a little bit lonesome& not enjoying his home too much.

Will try to write a real letter latter.This is just to keep you posted & let youknow I haven't forgotten you.Love ALB
