Dear Mom & Dad
After you left last nite, I found out we were going to Camp Cook. I looked I looked for you but it was a little late.
We left Ft. Sam at 9:30 P.M. and had a police escort to the S.P. Depot. We ran red lights
S.P. Depot is Southern Pacific
and speed straight down the middle of the street. There were 3 busses, 1 truck, 2 jeeps, and a motorcycle. After we got there we had to wait 1 hour in the bus for the train. It pulled out at
1:15 AM. It is 11:05 A.M. now and we just left Sanderson. We have and old Pulman. It is a slow, rough ride. One point of interest was that we passed over the 750 ft or more high Pecos high level bridge. That was a real Thrill.
I sure would hate to live here. It is awfully dry and rocky. There is nothing over 3ft
high here ecept hills. The rivers and creeks are all dry. I will send a letter tomorrow
and tell you where I am.
P.S. Wish I was home.
