Ten Fillings



Tuesday 31 October 1944, 10:00 PM
My Dearest,
     Another day, another dollar. This morning I saw eight patients. Put in ten fillings and treated a couple of mouths. By eleven I was hot and soaked to the skin or I should say from the skin out. In this weather I perspire very freely but the heat bothers me much less than I had expected.
     This afternoon I sat out on deck and read for a while. Then one of the officers joined me and we had an interesting chat about home and family.
     After sunset I went up on the bridge and did a little star gazing. By the time I get home I should have a fair knowledge of astronomy.
     Well My Darling that is all for today. With all my love,

Devotedly
Gil
