Deep in the heart of Texas

Hello Bill

I’m deep in the heart of Texas now I guess. We’re about 50 miles west of Leesville. This maneuver is about over but I think we will start another one.  I don’t know when I’ll get a chance to mail this pup tent I have for you home but I will as soon as I get a chance.

There were two other men who went after prisoners at the same time as we did. They both got drunk and got in jail and they had to send two more men after them. That’s really something.

I sure did enjoy my time at home and I hope I’ll get my furlough soon, cause I’m more anxious than ever to get back.

Guess I’ll have to close for now. Write me soon.

So long, Tom

P.S. I sent another envelope full of match covers from St. Louis. Did you get them?
