J.D.B [caricature of sailor] Hello Joe, What's cooking over in that part of the world? By the time that you get this, I'll very likely be in Shuemaker, [Shoemaker] Calif, waiting for a ship. I'm a radioman now, and I'll send you a few dots & dashes sometime. Hope that you can read this, and when I can write, I'll type, just for a _ _ marine. "You glorified sea-going bellhop" Like that? Best of luck from a [sob?], James David PS. will send address as soon as it changes. 'Til then, I'll let Tommy take over. Here's Tommy [arrow] over P.S.ps. Paper's upside down, so are radiomen -.
