Went to concert at night. Got letters from M.L, Cynthia & Aileen P.

    I think he means bivouac (also known as bivvy; a temporary / improvised tent). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bivouac_shelter and bivvy/bivvies referenced here and elsewhere: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinai_and_Palestine_Campaign.
