This letter was written by a female corporal who was in Louisville, Kentucky, April 30, 1945. She was writing to her boyfriend, who was serving aboard the USS Tuscaloosa. From the letter.....
Yesterday afternoon I went to town with a friend. We rode the street car all the way to the end. Churchill Downs the famous Kentucky Derby race track was near the end of the line. Then we ate at a Mexican Cafeteria and then went to the funniest show with Joan Davis solving several murder cases. Also we walked in a beautiful little park in the hear to town.
I think my job will let up in confusion in a couple of months and I’ll be my old self once more.
