cussed it briefly and then wished him good day. Another chap from my company--a lawyer--also had an interview--and he was told about the same thing with an addition that the Navy had no need of lawyers. As a result, we had an enjoyable walk to and from that particular area.

Tomorrow we have our boat drill on Lake Seneca--and in the afternoon I'm going to Geneva for ten hours' of liberty--tho I don't quite know what I'll do in town, probably very little except to eat out and just walk around.

We had another injection--our fifth so far--this time for yellow fever. One more injection--& we'll be getting our dog tags--and only 3 more Sundays left! Thursday morning I have to stand guard watch (for the first time) from 2 to 4 A.M.!

No letters from my darling Mon or Tues--perhaps there will be something in the mail tomorrow. I hope so. Are you too busy--or has the typewriter gone to pieces? How's that cherubic little lass, Rema?

Love Irv
