LETTER FROM T
From Lieut. Leland Bolt t<
Ft. McKinley, P. I.,
May 11, 1921.
I got your letters mailed April 8,
which seems quite a while, but it de
pends upon what time n.ail reaches
Frisco to catch an outgoing steamer,
We get mail about three or four times
a month from the States and it is a
joyous occasion when it does arrive
for we get a pile at a time, and it
seems a long time between howts. A
mail boat leaves the 12th for the
States so' I'll get this off in time to
catch it. Some go to Seattle aani some
to Frisco as you have probably no
ticed by the post mark.
I ani getting anelitnatized now and
lon't niin1l the tropical still so Imnuch,
but it surely does iea r down anl there

the sun, I guess I'll survive the water.
There is an airdome just in front of
my quarters with free opictures every
night and it is quite amusing to watch
these "Goo-Gooes" take on over the
scenes. They go wild over an exciting
scene and you can hear them yelling
all over the post just as if they were
at a prize light, and too, they laugh
at the wrong timie and it is very amus
I hope conditions are improving by
this time but I exuect it will take quite
a while to recover from the slump.
Conditions here are similar to the
States, the sugar market (Iropped,
producing the sme effect as cotton.
Hope all are well and fine.
