Maybe Censorship Will Be Lifted

Dearest Eleanor,
          Another busy morning and afternoon, but by three o'clock I was all through so I retired to my room and finished Edna Ferber's "Great Son."  Nothing to get excited about.  Then I showered, dressed for chow.  And now having enjoyed a hearty meal, here I am.
          How is Arrowhead?  Is the house comfortable and conveniently located?  Gosh, I wish I was there so I could lug the lunch you had packed down to the beach and take the kids into the water.  Next year it's a date.
          The captain's relief has fifty-four points.  I have a hunch that the admiral won't allow the captain to leave until another relief comes out.  So it goes.
          No mail today so I have little more to write about.  In a few days VJ day will be here and maybe censorship will be lifted. Then there'll be lots of things I'll be able to write about.
          The movie tonight is a Roy Rogers western, "Bells of Rosarita."  I don't have another thing to do so I guess I'll go.
          Goodnight darling until tomorrow.
Love,
Gil
