Dear Aunty Clara:

It took me all my available time to type letters x and xx so this is all I can write right now.

Send the wrist watch as soon as possible if not sooner. Mark on the package (which you will send by Air-Mail) "Return to sender if not delivered in five days". Also be sure to insure the thing for twice its cost.

The PX has closed or rather will be closed by the time any money reaches me so if I have $10 or so in that acct which is in yours and Aunty Florence's names please withdraw it. Buy yourself and Aunty Flo a pound of mallow delights for Valentine's Day. Then send me the rest of the money.
