Our kendo lessons which started about a week ago at Nakayama Kendo School are getting very interesting. I noticed my physique is improving.

Long Letter from Home. Received a long, long letter this p.m. which came via the Foreign Office through the Embassy. I was very happy to read a long account of the doings at home, especially about Papa and Mama and my nephews and nieces. Everytime I read such letters I feel more homesick.
