Bob - “Eighteen Cents” - Feb. 11, 1953 (Part 1)

While everyone watches the Chuck Davey vs Kid Gavilan fight, Bob takes the opportunity to send Marj a flurry of updates. With his leave pass back in hand he goes down to Baltimore to see Stalag 17. The next night he makes it to Washington D.C. for a surprise lecture on the Tetons. However, Bob’s exciting, yet grueling, life at Aberdeen may be coming to a close as he seeks a transfer to Yuma Test Station. Not to be outdone by Marj, he ends the letter with a post script joke of his own.
