by Harris for one or two minor [boners]. The red tape is tremendous & the forms vary a great deal--but I'll pick up that stuff altho [sic] I hope I can confine myself mostly to court martial work.

How is sweet Rema and how are you? Both faring well, I hope. It certainly is great to have a home to look forward to. I got a tremendous kick out of seeing the old homestead--& even seeing that Walton Ave. was still where I had left it. I guess it's the subconscious desire for security & stability in all of us--it comes to the fore in this new life I'm leading where everything is shifting & no one knows where he'll be on the morrow. Here every day one hears talk of this one & that one being shipped out--to all sorts of places.

Meanwhile the boys in the office have lured me into a discussion--

So signing off & hoping soon for mail from you--

Love Irv
