Dear Jack,

We finally reached Granada

Sat nite after being on the train
For 3 days & 3 nights. It was
a very long & tiring & uneventful
trip with no scenery to speak
of. We passed thru the Mojave
decert, Nevada, Utah &
Wyoming. They served us
excellent food on the train.

This camp isn’t prepared

for us yet so every thing
is very discouraging &
uncomfortable. Some of
the barracks are down in
the ground with dirt
up to the windows. There
isn’t enough water to go
around so it’s a luxury to
take a shower. No such thing
as warm water. The drinking
water is brought from town in
tanks. Thanks loads for the grocery
you sent & will you please
send the bill here? It was
certainly appreciated by everyone.
