Happy Birthday Dad

April 28, 1944


Hi Dad,

Well I sure would like to be back there with you on May 1 but I can’t seem to break my contract so I won’t be able to make it. I couldn’t see much around here that would be a sensible useful gift so here I am doing the same old thing. I never think that money is a good gift but I want you to spend this fast on something you really need or want. Don’t argue but use it. I don’t know what you need but buy yourself something. Maybe next year I can hand it to you. Anyway I hope you’ll have the best day possible. I know things aren’t much to make a person really enjoy himself but I guess we’re all in the same boat so just forget everything for 24 hrs.


Happy birthday,

Be seein’you
