July 8th, 1943: W. T. Jack—My Life in the Service

Two things happened to-day. Neither of much importance. I got my text books. I got a letter from Lois. The texts are all big, heavy and look tough, but will probably be easy. The letter was mailed the 30th of June – just about one week from the time she got my letter from Auburn. She said that she wrote to me while I was at home (?). Also that Francis didn’t say a thing about a telegram. Oh Fine! Now we are back right where we started. And as usual I am in the wrong. Quoting the immortal words of Donald Duck – “Phooey.” I bought Van Loon’s “Story of Mankind.” It seems to be very good. My sadly neglected history is falling back into place.
