About Letter 38

Bill tries to sell his special delivery stamps but gets no takers. Some sort of nasal infection is sending hordes of men to the camp hospital. It’s no wonder to Bill who says the men are injected with deadly germs, sent out into the ungodly climate and worked to exhaustion. He fixes the broken radio in the P.X. and listens to “Andre Kostolanis, the Prudential Hour, the news and several other things.” Bill’s friend, whose relatives all live in England, tells him that the British are suffering terrible war weariness and “all everyone speaks about is peace.” He says the current government there is “about as popular as Hitler.”
