About Letter 24

Bill urges his folks to reconsider their idea to visit him at Christmas time. He states, “Camp Abbot is a million miles from nowhere.” He points out that the railroad stops at Klamath Falls, 145 miles south of the camp and the rest of the way is by bus. As for driving, Bill reminds his folks that gasoline rationing makes that impossible. He thanks Mother and Daddy for all the goodies they have sent him and begs for some chocolate saying, “such things mean more to the fellows in camp than a 3 day pass.”
