The WW2 Letters of Private Melvin W. Johnson -READ VMAIL I'm writing this letter in a foxhole. I've been getting your letters regularly. Also one now and then from O.K. You mentioned not having heard from me for a long time. Maybe a letter got lost. It's been pretty rough going. Don't think I haven't been praying, for I have. I'm all right and I have good hope of continuing so. I think of you and the "young lady" constantly. I love you very much. Did you get the $25.00 I had sent to you? Tell Orv, Loty, and all the gang "hello".
Love, Melvin
