I've finished a rough draft of your idea, did it in shorthand & have to transcribe it. When I have it typed, I'll send it on to you for your suggestions & whether you think it's worthwhile. It may sound too flimsy.

Relative to your "forthcoming story at Geneva," there's still time for that tho [sic] I'll keep my eyes & ears open. Truthfully, there's so much change going on here that I hardly know whether anything is secure {here} ^ & whether any sort of plans can be made in advance.^ But it's something to keep in mind. My old boss, Lt. Hall, is being detached [sic] next week & getting orders to go elsewhere. One of the lawyer seaman in office has already finished his 90 days in "temporary" & may also be transferred.

Observations: 1) I have never seen so many newspapers from ^so many^ different towns & cities as float all over Sampson--an in my barracks. Any day I can pick up Texas papers, or Ohio, Pa., Conn., etc. & many of the yeomen hail from all over. I heard one from Iowa give the good old hog [any] tonight.
