My Dearest Florence;
just as I told you, old Dear, isn’t it. (that I would write you as soon as I arrived). Jesse and I arrived at one o’clock and I was disgusted with it as soon as I landed. But I suppose it will be ok. I went out to see the man that I had corresponded with and they would not let me see him until I showed some form of identification. I had the letter in my suit-case and of course could not show it to him as it was checked. Well to make a long long story short I will appear tomorrow and start work Wed.
We found us a nice room 1 1/2 blocks from Jesse’s bro. altho things are not as I would like to have them, I expect they will do for the summer. I don’t care a bit about this town but I have to put up with it now, since I am here.
I got on a car today and there was a good friend of myne from Rice, so you see it was not so bad. But just before this I found a De Molay down town, made myself acquainted and found out all the necessary news.
This is very hard to write as you don’t know the awkward position I am in. But the main thing it to let my old dear know I am here and my address. please write me a long letter.
1027 – 5th St
I will write soon.
