[Letter from Agnes Langley Niernberger, May 2, 1945]

Letter from Agnes Langley Niernberger to her family recounting her daily life while sailing from the United States to the Philippine Islands and upon arriving there. On the island, she tells them that they live in an old Catholic Academy with partial damage from the war, sleep on cots with mosquito bars, and eat with mess kits and canteens in a tent. She mentions that upon arriving, the Filipino people were happy to see them. Agnes' life on the boat consisted of dancing, singing, performances from the G. I. Orchestra, movies, and sleeping on the boat deck. She says it is the first day they received mail since leaving the U.S., and that she received letters from many friends and family, and that she was shocked to hear of President Roosevelt's death and excited to hear of Adolf Hitler's death. She asks if they received a brown envelope that they talked about when she was previously home, and says she will write when she can.

She tells them that she cannot write much about her travels but that she is eating well, getting a tan, and has not gotten sea sick.
