About this Item

4 pages, written in ink in a good legible hand; G.C. Pierzchanowski in Special Services at Corry Field writing friend George Tuthill stationed at NAS Lakehurst, NJ; missing his friend, he requests more letters; commiserates with Tuthill concerning relationship entanglements and confusions, discussed; evidently there has been competition and break-offs among several inter-related people, with some violence: ".I'm glad that Shirley finally got sense enough to break off with John. He's no dam good to her going around slapping her and telling her off all the time. John deserves what he's got now "nothing"."; and relating some of his own story, ".I'm playing football here on the varsity team for Pensacola and so I haven't had much time to see this girl here in town who I've been going with for quite a while."; and going on to graphically describing a sexual incident; he tells of 'dumping' this woman and pines for another back home; drinking is a large part the friends' activity and he has some 4 incarcerations with the Shore Patrol ".and a fifth time won't hurt any."; looking forward to Christmas visiting and getting drunk together and (perhaps) re-uniting with a former lover; on lined 8" x 10 1/2" notepaper, with the original mailing envelope, 3c stamp canceled Pensacola Nov. 5 1956; envelope with opening at side, edge torn away; old fold lines to notepaper, in very good condition; a small and lively bit of evidence of the life of this U.S. Navy serviceman.
