    Lol - a couple of months ago a guy I work with gave me five large boxes
    of Playboy magazines. As I went through them, I saw only about a
    dozen actual 'Playboy' mags - the others are 'Cherie', 'Penthouse',
    'Oui', 'International' and some other obscure editions, all from
    the 60's, 70's and 80's.

    He gave them to me because his 4 1/2 year old boy told grandma
    he was 'going upstairs to read'. Naturally, he cannot read yet
    and they caught him with all the mags spread out and
    open on the bedroom floor !



    Please post some of the more interesting bits from your
    tote bin Helmetone.........!
    I must say that you are doing a remakably fine job of typing with your free hand Steve, well done.

    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

    Letter dated Monday 8, 1943 (no month). Postmarked Newport News, VA, February 9, 1943. This one is fairly easy to read so I didn't transcribe it to the thread.
