Letter from Sonnyboy to Pauline Smith; September 30, 1943. Sonnyboy is roughing it in the army now that he is finished driving tanks. He complains to his mother about the bivouac and says that the place is crawling with skunks, but is cheered by the fact that he is gaining weight and has $26 to buy a watch.
