Land of Moab
Very hot glad to be near the J. Thought I was alright for leave but found I was not.
General C. said I had been away too much!!!-after 3 ½ years!! & on duty at that. However the war can't last for ever-
Had a swim in
Jordan swift current hard water from Mica sulphur gypsum sand it runs through. Not as big as the Edwards but plenty scrub along bank, X don't think I'll have to pay for those troughs & reservoirs I had stolen now- the Bill 52/-/- was too stiff altogether.X
