Foster Rutledge is the C.O. of Flying Corps here but I've never met him.

Hard as it may seem I cannot possibly see poor JOE could leave you all, I know I have the best of it, still he knows he is doing his job. I note dear old Day is sending me some SOKS. Thanks for information re Bank quite RICH I am & get more pay as Major 30/- a day now.
