7 April 1944

The WW2 Letters of Private Melvin W. Johnson -READ VMAIL Am getting accustomed to the many differences in the ways of living in this strange land. For instance, the money used everywhere here, even in camp, is British - pence, shillings, etc. Haven't got that class B allotment changed yet to increase the amount of bonds to be sent you. Will try to have it done. Look up my prescription for lenses. I broke one eye-piece (right) in my glasses. Have a ray of hope to offer you. I may be picked for specialized work. Foreign languages. Remember that examination? I'm hoping. Keep your fingers crossed.
Love, Melvin
