“Button,” Espiritu Santo

Slept through hell and high water last night (drunks).

Washed the last two weeks worth of clothes this morning. Wrote six past-due letters in the afternoon — an all-time record. I feel like a Boy Scout this evening. 

Saw a very fine picture this evening at the Seabees camp. Ingrid Bergman in “Casablanca.” Not a peep out of the audience during the show, which is the highest mark of commendation a movie can get out of a servicemans’ showing.
