Dearest “Lib”,

Well I have some more news. Guess you could call it bad. My orders have been changed. I’m to report to Dallas Texas. Sure is a far ways from home.

Have hesitated writing home as I hate to tell them. Don’t think it will be so bad out there. Everyone says that Dallas is a very nice place.

This will not interfer [sic] with our wedding plans unless you don’t want to go with me. I love you so much, and am hoping to see you soon.

Sam hasn’t heard yet about whether he’ll get transfered [sic] or not. Nearly everyone that was going to Camp Pickett have been transfered [sic].

All my love,
Manning
