"I know you have been wondering where I am and what I have been doing. I'm stationed in Africa and have had very little time for writing. Africa isn't such a bad place-the climate is similar to parts of the United States. The principal crop is grapes and wine-making is the big industry. It's a pity that they can't make good wine, at least I haven't been able to find any that's good. We're getting good food, most of it being shipped from the States. I have with me the razor that Dad was issued in the last war. It has been to France once, but I don't know where it is going now.
"I never felt better in my life and am very happy, although at times I do get a bit homesick."
Your Nephew, Wm. Jr."
