Hi Love,
I won't write a letter tonight
but will call. I'm feeling pretty
low and feverish from a typhoid
shot I got at 3 PM.
It's 8:30 now and it's taking
effect. Hope ever thing is better
in the morning and I suspect
it will be. Will write a longer
note tomorrow. Just realized I
sent today's letter with an airmail
sticker an no airmail postage.
Wonder when it will arrive. Plane left hangar
today and engines were run up. Schedule still
looks like first. Love Wink

Seminole Indian Babies, Florida
The Seminole Indians who make the Florida Everglades
their home are a strange and unique race. They are skillful
fishermen and good hunters; wear a distinctive costume of
horizontal striped material and are probably the most simple,
primitive people still living in the United States.
