Put In Ten Fillings

Tuesday 31 October 1944, 10:00 PM

My Dearest,

          Another day, another dollar.  This morning I saw eight patients.  Put in ten fillings and treated a couple of mouths.  By eleven I was hot and soaked to the skin or I should say from the skin out.  In this weather I perspire very freely but the heat bothers me much less than I had expected.

          This afternoon I sat out on deck and read for a while.  Then one of the officers joined me and we had an interesting chat about home and family.

          After sunset I went up on the bridge and did a little star gazing.  By the time I get home I should have a fair knowledge of astronomy.

          Well My Darling that is all for today.  With all my love,
