February 23 Tuesday, 1943


ToDay is the Birthday of ___________

Fair and warm, wind South.

Hooray the ice went out of the harbor last night.

Got a U. mail letter from Bud.

Report came from the M.A.S.

Saw a downey woodpecker.

Thelma, Vick, Eric, and Walder and Aunt Julia took a ride up on the hill.

Worked all day raking and cleaning up.

Alexander Dahlia farm has burned.

This was the first day that I have worked in my shirt sleeves.

We are not doing so hot in the African campaign.

I hope that the backbone of the winter has been broken.

Thelma stayed home from work on account of a cold.

Snowdrops are in bloom.

Jaunquills [jonquils, or daffodils] have started to peep thru the ground.

“Beware of the fury of a patient man.” Dryden

V-mail, short for Victory Mail, was a hybrid mail process used by the United States during the Second World War as the primary and secure method to correspond with soldiers stationed abroad. To reduce the cost of transferring an original letter through the military postal system, a V-mail letter would be censored, copied to film, and printed back to paper upon arrival at its destination
