Mont Joli, P. Q.
February 12, 1944
I've got another request. I need my birth certificate, so that I can cross the U. S. border, so could you contact Rev. Crewe, and get one for me?
And I'll be waiting for those snaps that I took while I was at home. I'm glad to hear that Dad is getting along so well, that Arthur is enjoying his hockey, and that you are pleased to be painting a room in the house. Later on, I'll send along a recent photo of Joyce.
Yes, I'd like to read the book "Lassie Come Home". I 1iked the movie a lot. (By the way, Joyce wrote that she was planning to see it.) Lately I've been reading a few Tehune books about collie dogs. That's real good of you to get the books for me. Thanks.
The movie "Above Suspicion" was made from the same book as I have on my shelves. I've finished the book "Disputed Passage". I liked it so much that I asked Joyce if she would like to have it. I'll sent it to her if she wishes it.
I'm on my 96 right now, so yesterday I went skiing, but I found the ski poles to be trickey to get used to, but after a few tries I got used to them.
Last night I went ice skating in town, but it was very frosty. You'd make a few rounds on the ice, and then you'd have to go in for some heat. but it wasn't too bad. So I put in quite a "sporting" day.
Today there are a few snowflakes, and there's a wind, so I'm confined to reading and writing. By the way, could you send some blue Air Force handkerchiefs? Say hello to Dad, Grandma, Gloria, Art and the cats.
P.S. here are a few snaps of Joyce, which were sent to me yesterday with her valentine. Send them back with your next letter to me. o. k. ? L
