Dick to Crystal: 7 July 1941

February 23rd, 2011 · No Comments

[Letter postmarked on 15 July 1941 at 10 a.m. at Riverside, Illinois.  Addressed to Miss Crystal K., Marshalltown, Iowa, c/o Mrs. P.  Return addressed to Mr. Richard N., Riverside, Illinois.]

July 7

     To-day I arose at 8:00 and was down to the airport at 9, flew a half hour and rested an hour (Resting an hour – silly, isn’t it? Regulations call for an hour’s rest between half hour flights.)  Flew another half hour and then went to the office.  Boy, it was hotter than HCXXE (well, you know what I mean) to-day.  In all that heat, I had to traipse downtown with some papers during noon – the hottest part of the day.  Was I a happy lad!  (Oh, yeah!)  Worked and sweated all afternoon and sweated all evening in school with a test.  Got out at 10:30 and went to the Bonnet, had 2 brews and was home in bed at 11:30.

     (Honey, I love you) xxxx
