July 26, 1943

Dearest “Lib”,

Thought it was hot down south but beleive [sic] it bothers me more up here. Suppose being in classes these hot days make the difference.

Sure do miss you, but guess you get tired of hearing this over and over.

Saw the doctor out here in the camp dispensary and he said that he would change the wassermann from the S.C. state board lab. to the Penn. form. If you will get the wassermann taken and send me the report, I’ll get it changed before you get here. Try and get it to me by the latter part of the week or the first part of next week.

Could use a lot of flowery language but beleive [sic] I’ll say that Darling I miss you so much and am looking forward to see [sic] you.

All my love,
Manning.
