2nd Mon.
Got 5 letters today. One was from Marine admitting she kissed an Officer at Sparta. I have forgiven her, but inside of me it will hurt for a long time to come.

3rd Tues.
Went to see Dan Kraemer tonight. Didn’t get to see W. Kessil or Orville Hanson. I guess it won’t be long now. Maybe tomorrow night or Thursday.

4th Wed.
Getting knives, machetes, and other fighting equipment. It looks like business this time.

5th Thurs.
Played ball this PM. Won again 6-0.

6th Fri.
Torrents of rain today. 44 of our boys are set to go tomorrow. We will follow shortly. All of us pretty nervous.

7th Sat.
Still torrents of rain and still waiting.

8th Sun.
Played a game of baseball. Last one for here.

9th Mon.
Loaded truck and took it to the docks. We are going on a Liberty ship, “Augustus Thomas.” Saw the show The Mask of Dimitrios. Very good. Tonight I watched the biggest loading of men, ship[? illegible], and equipment I ever saw. I got a sort of empty feeling inside. I know the push is on and we will be in it.
