About Letter 85
Now that he is up to receiving 10 words a minute Bill is feeling a bit better about his code work. He is also working as an instructor in demolition, mines, and booby traps. The additional responsibility suits him. Bill complains that most of the men in his barracks are "the dumbest bunch of Bohemians I ever saw." He says that he does get to "talk a little common sense now and then with a few A.S.T.P. men and a few Chinese fellows here", including Tall Kay Loo, a cousin of the actor Richard Loo. Bill closes the letter with a comical sketch.
