The WW2 Letters of Private Melvin W. Johnson -READ VMAIL I am at present somewhere in England. It's quite beautiful country here. Just like you'd read about - rolling hills covered with green grass, small clumps of trees, and clear streams filled to the brim with quiet water. Getting poetic, eh? But there seems to be a great deal of cold rainy weather here this time of year. Maybe it'll warm up by June. Rather hard to sleep warm here at night now. The training in the ETO seems to be pretty tough at times. Sure makes you appreciate home - this Army life. It's pretty difficult to write a good letter since there're so many things I can't mention. I'm seeing a lot of things though I'll tell you about when the war's over. Glad to hear the baby's all right. And the bonds are doing nicely too!
Loads of love, Melvin
