Emil Wagaman                                                                   Sept. 8, 1945

Emil Wagaman, son of  Mrs. Dan Wagaman, who is in the service of Uncle Sam, but was injured and is now at Bushnell General Hospital at Brigham City, Utah. A letter from him gives the following information:

 Dear Mrs. Wagaman:  Your son was operated on the day after he wrote you and is getting along very well.  It is best that he stay as they have the very best medical care in the country here and you wouldn’t want him to have to change doctors, they know his condition so well here.  R.C. nurse.

Dear Mother: I have been a little bit under the weather this week, but the doctors have fixed me up now and I expect to be getting out of here in a few months. It would be nice if you could come and see for yourself and I would surely like to see you.

The doctors come to see me every day and the nurses give us good care. I have a fairly good appetite and they give us anything we want.

The weather has turned cooler so we are more comfortable. The Red Cros worked brought me some lovely purple and white asters today. They make the room so cheerful.

How is everybody? Do write and tell me some news. Tell Lily to go to school and work hard and be a good girl. Let me know if you plan to come here and then I can try to find a place for you to stay.
