I intended writing a regular letter this morning but due to changing events – I’ll have to use this – it’s quicker. Again no mail – darling – but I know you’re writing and I ought to get several letters any day now. It’s Sunday morning at 1030 and I can think of at least 3 things I’d rather be doing than sitting here in a jeep in the middle of an apple orchard in France.

Darling – it can’t be far off! Just sit tight, save this letter and we’ll see how it compares with the real thing.

From Page 25 from The Route of the Question Mark:
|(A) St. Jean-de-Daye to (B) Dangy (15 miles)|
17 to 20 July 1944
(Exact route is unknown)
July 30... Dangy. Here the enemy planes did their best to demolish us, and we couldn't dig our fox-holes deep enough. We saw the tremendous effect the bombing had as we passed thru the former German lines. M/Sgt LIVINGSTON was hit in the leg by a piece of shrapnel as he lay in his fox-hole, not enough to earn the Purple Heart. Snipers fired at our guards.
