Tuesday 14 August 1944, At Sea
As I sit down to write I find that all I can say is a repetition of what I have said in my earlier letters. Work, eat, and sleep, with a little recreation in the way checkers, gin rummy, acey ducey, and walking around the deck is a good summary of my daily routine.
I was a little busier in my office today and saw eight patients. I also spent about an hour finishing up the cataloging the books in the ship's library.
Finished a murder mystery last night and am beginning another today. Movies are not shown at sea as a matter of security. In case of an emergency it is felt that all the men aboard should not be congregated in one portion of the ship--so no movies.
It is now almost time for supper so I'm going to shower and change shirts as I've done lots of sweating today.
I'll see you in my dreams.
