This letter, postmarked July 12, 1944, is written from James T. Carlisle to T. R. House in Houston, Mississippi. Carlisle expresses to his family that he has enjoyed his time at Pueblo and hated to leave. He goes on to inform them that he will be deployed overseas and will put his address as Lincoln, Nebraska on the inside but his previous address on the envelope in case the letters with the current address are censored. Carlisle speculates as to where overseas he might be sent and expresses his wish to be able to go home instead despite his impending promotion.
