8th – 9th – 10th
Brought mail up to us. Got a nice bunch of letters. Will off [? illegible] to answer them. It is getting damn tiresome up here.

11th – 12th – 13th
Still at the ferry and still getting shelled. It is a damnable life. No chance to write. Work from dawn until dusk.

14 – 15 – 16th
Still at the ferry. No mail. The bridge is to be finished tonight.

17th Thurs.
The same old story. No operation.

18 – 19th
Fixing equip. Been busy all day.

20th Sun.
Loaded up this morning and left right after dinner for the front lines which are about 6 miles north of Davoa. Slept with my clothes in a fox hole. Rained all night. My back sure hurt all night and that is no fun. No excitement from the Japs.

21 – Mon.
Some Japs crawled up on us last night. The guards shot the hell out of one, but they only found hunks of his hide laying there this morning. He must have had buddies who dragged him away.
