Dear Father & Mother
On reaching the hospital from my vacation I found three letters waiting me. One had the letter you sent me from Sacramento. Mailed two letters while away, but fear they will not reach you.
I will see what I can do about the allotment and let you know in a couple of days. Can not make it smaller, may be able to send $15 direct to Union Trust Savings Bank and $15 to you.
Have not heard from Ed for about six weeks. Does he say anything about writing to me.
Told in last letter about my trip, hope you get the letter. Must close as it is bed time and the lights must be out.
