Medical Alcohol and Coke

Another day closer to that day. Today has been very quiet and uneventful. No mail, no news, no excitement--yes, no nothing.
I spent the day fooling around, reading and killing time. We got a hold of a half gallon of medical alcohol. It makes a swell drink with coke and ice. No ice, but a swell drink anyhow. By now you've gathered that I'm slightly high and you're right. I am. We had several shots before chow and then a few beers for chasers. We went to the movie afterward and saw "The Cat and the Canary" with Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard. Now we are back for a few more snorts and then to bed. Anyway I'll sleep better.
There was no mail for me today. That makes three days straight running. By now I hope you've received the claim check and several other letters containing "gook" money and Philippine "Peso" notes.
Goodnight Sweet, even if you can't read this, it isn't important.
