I Can’t Get Off And Hitchhike

Wed. 13 Dec. ‘44


Dear folks,

This won’t be too long tonight as there isn’t much to say. I don’t have any more letters to answer now. I don’t feel so hot today and haven’t all day. The sea isn’t too rough I suppose actually but boy it’s throwing me around too doggoned much. This boat is rolling in 4 different directions I’d swear. I have an easily upset stomach as you know. I’ve stuffed myself at both meals today when I wasn’t hungry just to keep full. I’ve kept it down O.K. too so far which is more than a lot have done. I’ve spent nearly all day on deck as our quarters down here are no place to nurse a lousy feeling stomach. We don’t get quite enough circulation of air in my opinion. It’s still a little early but there isn’t much I can say. I hope this ocean irons itself out by tomorrow. We still have way too far to go for me but I can’t get off and hitchhike. I’m going to fly back or something as I can’t see doing this again. Well enough complaining for one day so I’ll sign off.
