Well, maybe we'll have Hitler where the negro on the other side is pretty soon (we hope). I had a swell time while I was home, only wish I could of stayed longer, but uncle Sam said no. Hope you are all well, as I am O.K. It's awful warm here, you should have some of this weather up there to make hay. Write when you can. Nevin."
