Football Shoes

San Pedro, California
October 10, 1918

Dear Mother,

I wrote you this a.m. and this afternoon. My football shoes came to me. They had been lying in the P.O. for a while. I opened them and got the toothpaste. I just felt like there was something in besides the shoes -- and the paste will most surely come in luck for I was low again.

Am sending the shoes back to Donovan. I sure wanted to try out here, but as there isn't any team, I can't. Got your letter with the clippings also this afternoon.

I haven't smoked for two weeks -- when I began taking medicine smokes tasted bad, so I haven't started again.
