U. S. S. Cuyama “Confidential”

Dear Pauline,

I written to you yesterday but I don’t believe I told you about our sailing, we will leave here about Thursday for San Pedro there for one day then to Honolulu again. We are due back here about Sept. 15th or there about. I will write you from Honolulu so when I say in my letter from Honolulu. Sam’s Birthday is September 15 that will be the code for the date we will arrive in San Diego or any name stating date so you understand what date we will arrive back.

I passed my exam for promotion as soon as the president signed it. I will be drawn $230 per month and when I get married it will be $300 per month. I saw those pictures you and I made together, boy what an animal I look like.

I am longing when the time come, when I can see you in California.

Abb
