    9 September 24, 1942 Dear Gertie, Your letter No 7 which was mailed at 12 PM xxxxxxx September 19thx arrived here September the twenty secondat eight AM Wasn[']t that the fastest thing that you have ever heard of My how I wish that my letters to you would go as quickly[,] I feel so badly about the long time they take, probably they have not arrivedyet- We have had the most hectic week you have ever seen loving the office from one building to another , all the files desks, officers personal belongings etc. Of course everyone wanted to go right on working at their desks in one office until the new one was ready As there are night and dry shifts this made the moving very difficult and we practically ran ahead of them with their desks in the air above our heads and set them down in the new office so that everything was ready when the great moguls arrived . Morris was really a master mind of efficency and the commanding officer complmented him and all the men said he had done a great job He really loves it and has the yeoman running around systemizing everything so that I sup_pose the whole navy will gradually adopt his systems He is very funny about it all as he says there is nothing not left for him to do but file savers and be efficent as he will be ferry on the twenty firm which is tomorrow. Ben Finney told us that when he woke up on his fortieth birthday he just sat with his head in his hands and cried softly as he thought about it I of course have no such feelings as I will only be thirty nine on the first of november and still ayyoungester [End Page 1] Everyone in Honolulu who has not a job has to leave, that is all the women, and if you take a job you must contract for a year- This has given everyone the fits and a commander here was about to have his wife sent back to the mainland She decided to take a job although she hated to sign up for a year , Of course you know the result , the moment she signed the papers he was transferred to another postand here she is stuck and msd as a march hare. Another girl who is staying with her husband at the hotel thought she could get away with it and did not sign up ,The final act of this drama is[,] she received a notice to be on two hour call for deportation to the mainland .This means she has to stick by the telephone in order to catch the boat within two hours of the time she is told to Rest assured she is not angry. She can't even swim out far for fear of being away to long. I wish we had learned flying also It is the thing and so important now, If you have several hundred hours you have the jump on everyone else and can get the most interesting positions because naturally it is necessary to have some practical knowledge when you specialize in this field, So far this has been the most important part of our work and a number of the men have been sent away , far away in fact,to work in this field, No one knows when they will have to go because the orders do not emanate from this office but fro the tops who order men out whenever they are needed . The result is we nick up our mall in me morning and look immediately for one of those big long envelopes. [End Page 2] e Every morning we have breakfast at the officers quarters in the Navy yard The most wonderful breafast is served cafeteria styl for thirty cents , Two fruits and afruit juice, waffles or pancsleen scrambled or fried eggs and sauges or bacon, coffee or tea ,You know that isreally wonderful for thir[t]y cents, and I do not see how they do it, because food isreally very expensxive out here, I I still swim every evening when I return here,and it absolutely save_s the day for me . I know of nothingthat takes the kinks out of ones back better and gives you that wonderful relaxed feeling Also it does not live one tired as tennis does and is such a cool pleaseant thing to do after sitting in a hot office, However I certainly have nothing to complain about as re_gards the weather . It is abosoulte per[f]ect and the nearest thing to heaven onx thisside of me earth, Every day sunshine and wonderul bre___ezes that sweep across the island and make you feel like a million dollars. Then at night you have the calmnest and peace of of a sub_trooical climate[,] with a big moon that hangs in the sky and thousandsof stars that drop down on top of you when you lie on the lawn by the sea and look up at them. I certainly miss you dear and look forward to the day men we can be together again . I think you are doing wonderful[y] with your Job andbet that in the end you will be at the headof the organization because you have great ability and just have never used it before . I am so delighted that you are doing so now and will be willng to bet that both of our lives will be much broader when this war is over, even though it isso difficult to be apart now I send you all my love darling andhope you are well. Sidney J. Legendre [End Page 3] Morris and I tried a little tenni_s the other day in the hopes that it would limber us up after sitting so long The resultwas that we puffed one blew like two old walruses and swore that we would never do anything so rash again. I also hit on one leg to hard and my hip slipt out a little. Not enough to double me up but just so it hurts Unfortunaley I have not the onportunity to go in to town and see an oesteopath as we have to always be on hand during the reconstru[c]tion period here. Some one always wants special paper, a new desk, or practically their faces washed and we have to run around like a couple of rabbits, I think next week will quiet a little and I will run into town which is about half an hour from here during the luncheon hourx and get straightened out again, Last night we went to a chinese resturant called the good earth' It is about two blocks from our hotel and Morris said he had to have chinese food , in fact could not live without it. Another boy[,] Teddy and I demurred a little[,] but finally we set out. You know this was worse than the first evening we went there. I have not the faintest idea what we ate as all the dishes were covered with dark thick sources. However I know it could not have been very good because a poor thin dog came in and I offered him my plate and he sniffed it and then let out a howl and ran out of the door, Probably part of his father or bro[t]her was in that dish The best thing out here and that I like above everything else is the pineapple They are delicious and we get great slabs of them for breakfast. We also have pineapple juice which is delicious[,] but which I do not think is fresh and which I have been told is out af a can which has been first shippped to America and then sent back here.
