Transcription

Monday afternoon--Hi- Arrived here Friday evening. Leck was fine and looked grand. The trip was very long and tiresome but I am very glad I am here for a few days. We are staying at the Markham Hotel and my room over looks the Gulf. Leck received a week end pass from Sat. noon until Sunday at ten. We are meeting them this evening at Biloxi for a couple hours. Will tell you all the news when I see you. Be home for work Monday. Jean [sic]
