43: A Lot Of Living In Those Two Days.

Feb. 4[1]

Dear Girls,

There is so much to tell you–so very much. I want to tell you the whole story, and will if I can ever get it all down on paper. I did a lot of living in those two days, and a lot of thinking about it since–but the main thing is that I was not afraid and neither were my boys–there were lots of times when they actually enjoyed it. The spirit–cooperation, morale–is very high–everybody is glad he is a Marine–the plans are that we rest and re-organize for a month or so, but that’s not certain.
