That little bottle travelled a long ways, but when I opened it, the journey
was over. You can't imagine how delicious it tasted. I could have sold or
traded it for untold value.
Inclosed you find a picture taken of me just after I had hit the ground
for my final qualifying jump. No I did'nt land on my feet. The chute is a
camouflage job, and is a bit hard to see. I will send the negative later
(when I get it), and I wish you would have several enlargements made and
sent to me. I have a roll of film in the camera in the process of being
shot up, but it has been for a week, and I hope it is'nt ruined. I have
taken great care to keep it dry, but the heavy moisture out here has a very
disasterous effect on film left in a camera over two days. If they come
out OK I will send you some of the pictures.
Well here to a Happy New Year for you. I hope things are going well
at MIT, by the way do you still get per diem? Well Bud write soon.
