My Dearest Maudy,

I received your letter last night and was sure glad to hear from you.

I guess the Germans have quit at last. It sure is some big day. Parades are going all the time and the streets are very crowded. Oh, how I wish you were here to see the things that happen. The people are going crazy. They are just mad with happiness.

I am going to try and get out just as soon as possible and then that will be happy day for me for I am tired of the life. It don’t suit me very well.

How will it suit you to have me come back and tease you and go out and have a real old good time, the kind we used to have only I have changed a whole lot. I know I sure would like to be back and have a real time once more. I will someday, dear girl, and then we will have a real time.

I must close for now.
Your loving Clark
