"This may get home Saturday evening before I do, or I found a quicker way to send it off. Today, I feel much up to par, have pretty well snaped (sp) out my cold. I had a haircut tonight and waited out a line for an hour. I'll be home later because I won't get through school and calestents (sp) till five and will leave post about six or after. It was warmer this morning. Love Justin."
No postage stamp was required - it is marked "free".
