April 18th 1944
Dear George and Florence,
I’m assuming that George will be home when this letter arrives. Receiving your airmail letter today advising of your furlough was one swell surprise. I am elated that it has come through so soon, and unexpectedly.

Mom and Pop will sure be happy about it, and I guess George is tickled pink. I know your furlough will be wonderful.

I was going to phone Mom today, but after learning of the furlough, I thought perhaps it would be nice if I could speak to George too. I’d at least like to say hello. I’d appreciate if you could arrange to be with Mom & Pop at a specified time. Let me know, and I’ll try my best to get it through.

This may be difficult, as I think I may ship out next week. I don’t know how the phone facilities will be at my next post.

I just had a wisdom tooth extracted, and I’m first beginning to feel it. So please excuse the brevity of this letter.

Florence, thanks a million for the cigarettes, which always comes in handy.

Hope everything is fine with all of you, and that Flo’s and Jim’s stay in the country was a nice one –
Best regards from Fran –
With a handshake in mind - BoB
