Dearest wife and baby,

Well here I am in the biggest city in the world, New York, and still don’t know where I am going. I got to write this fast because we won’t be here for long. Boy, is this a big city. Big skyscrapers. Well, the train is pulling out so I must close now. Lots of love. Ralph

Notes: Again a penny postcard, which they probably gave free to the troops.
