Somewhere in route

My darling;

It was [sic] been a few days since I last wrote you a letter. As you see by this letter I’m not with the hospital. Would like to write you more about everything but of course censorship will not permit it.

Have enjoyed everything very much. Really I’m very much pleased with my trip. I’ve seen a great many things that I’ve enjoyed. Certainly was tired of the island that I’ve been on for so long.

Hope you are well as it has been some time since I got your last letter. Don’t want you to worry about me as I’m going to be alright.

Love always,
“Boobie.”
