Dear Mom

I wrote a letter to you last Friday but we couldn't send them as we moved from our first camp, near Calcutta to a camp here at Ledo, India. Ledo is in the northeast part of India. We came up here in Company trucks. We drove the trucks on to flat cars on a train part of the way and we had to stay with the trucks even when we were on the train. The trip was very tiresome but interesting. This Ledo Road that we drove over is a part of the Burma Road and it is fairly good now, although a while back it was terrible. We drove over a mountain that was a little dangerous but not bad if you're careful. The road was very dusty and had a lot of narrow bridges . . .
