Letters from Theodore Katz
Nov. 20, 1944
Your letters of the 5th and 6th of Nov arrived today and acting in accord with your instructions am using V-mail, though I can’t understand why the airmail hasn’t been coming through. Your mail, both air and V-mail has been arriving regularly and both take about the same amount of time with air mail a shade quicker.
Marlene Dietrich has just walked by – being here to entertain the boys - wearing GI clothes replete with helmet, looking very unglamorous. I, being [in] charge of quarters, will unfortunately miss the show. But I don’t think it’ll be a great loss.
Glad that “Molly” has finally arrived – and probably by now her “big sister,” Miss Houbigant, has already found her way to your door. Being girls I don’t suppose they’ll be much use to the baseball team, but we can always use them as mascots – and then again, they may help in the making of the team, not that help is needed, of course – but just something for them to do to earn their bread and board –
All my love,
