The WW2 Letters of Private Melvin W. Johnson -READ VMAIL Have received several more letters from you in the past several days. Just the other day received the pictures of you and the baby. They were certainly something. Elaine is cute, no kidding. Got a letter from Gus. Said she had some wine saved for me. It was really a long letter for Gus and a very nice one. Also got letters from Margaret B. and Evelyn J. Evelyn was warmer and more affectionate in tone than I can ever remember. Am waiting for those two other pictures you promised! Tell O.K. that his epistles are scintillating gems of wit and are much appreciated. Not much to say, I guess. I'm O.K. Don't worry about me.
Love, Melvin
