I think she will be changing up soon as she gets her allotment Paul is sending. She sent Paul [Jr] a lot of new clothes, he sure needed them. Well we heard J. C. [Colvin] got home. We never got to see him, he went to Houston to work. We ahven't got to go to the Flat to church in a long time. Do you ever hear any good singing there, You never tell what you are learning to be. Do hope you come back this way. I sure would love to come see you. Are you coming home soon or will you get any time off?
Aunt Maggie said Rue was still at Amarillo, Tex. We had to sign up for another ration book today. Almost ever thing is on this book.
