Here it is your birthday mom, so I’ll say happy birthday to you. I have thought about you all day and when mail call came I received four letters from you. Did you have a nice birthday and how many presents did you get. This time next year we should be able to celebrate our birthdays together. I also received the four rolls of film and believe it or not a box from Rita. It kinda stopped me for a moment. She seldom writes but I guess that a that’s a Fleshner trait. She says she still loves me but it remains to be seen when I get home. Right now it doesn’t bother me one particle. I have a large stack of your letters to answer so one of these days I will write a long letter. Goodbye and I love you both from the bottom of my heart.
