Dearest “Lib,”

Received five v mail letters today and three of them were from you. Suppose the above address is alright as it was the way you had it on your letter.

Know that you will get on to everything out there. I’ve always hated a new kind of work but after you get in it there isn’t very much to it. Suppose it will take a little time to get accustomed to everything.

Went to see a very lousy show tonight. The title was “Tall in the Saddle.” The sound wasn’t very good so that might have had something to do with it. Regards to the Richardsons.

Love always,
“Boobie”
