13 Dec 44 Dear Ma, I received your letter to-day and also the pictures. I was very happy to hear from you and also glad to hear that everything is all right. I'm o.k. and I'm getting along fine. Well Ma, I guess you've been wondering where I'm located and all I can say now is that I'm somewhere in France. I guess you've probably surmised something to that effect when you received the change of address. So it's pretty cold at home. I hope they're all wrong when they say that you'll be getting the coldest winters that you've ever had. It sure takes too much coal to keep the place warm in the cold weather. I received a Christmas and a Happy New Year card from Antoinette Christopher yesterday. They were pretty nice cards too. I've yet got to write to her and send her my best wishes for the coming season. Which reminds me, I haven't got any Christmas cards to send to you but I wish all of you at home a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. I know how you feel with all of us guys away from home, but the good Lord will make us all feel good somehow on that day Well Ma, I guess I'll have to close for now Your loving son Frank
