Letter from Lieutant Jack O. Rhyner to his parents, Walter H. and Nettie M. Rhyner. Lt. Jack O. Rhyner ASN 0-802003 525 Sqd. 379 Gp. APO #634 C/o Postmaster NY, NY Dear mom & dad: Got two letters from you in the last two days. One was from Nov. 8 and the other from Dec. 27. Also got your cablegram today. Glad to hear everyone at home is well. Keep on taking care of yourselves. You always tell me to take care of myself, but don't worry about me. I will and I'm O.K. everything is going all right by me. Was at London once since I've been here. It really is a place to see. Went thur Westminster Abby. It really is quite a sight. Also saw some of the places that were bombed. It seemed rather cruel. But all in all it was a good time. Sorry to hear about Corky having the chicken pox but it's better if he has those kid troubles before he gets older. It's too bad if he has to miss school but it would be worse if he missed school when he gets farther along. I'll see how I stand financially before I send that money home. I may need it. If I don't, however, I'll send it back and you can put it in the bank or use it as you see fit. What does the account read now. Maybe I'll have enough to get married sometime. Signing off for now. Be good and keep the letters coming. Your son, Jack
