If you think it a big funny joke that I have everybody sleeping with my wife – I don’t!!!! For your information, I am really mad and am not kidding in any way whatso-ever! Now don’t say that I am jealous because you know better than that! and what makes it worse, there were two other women there to witness it! Don’t tell me that he hadn’t any place to sleep that night, either – because I know that’s not true! What the hell is the truth, hon?? I may as well tell you now; if I read or hear anything like that again; [you won’t have to worry about how and when I am coming home and neither will I]!!!! because it will be better if I don’t. To be sure I am straightened out, hon, I am going to [stop writing you until I receive a good answer] that will straighten me out if I am twisted. In the time I am waiting for your answer [I hope you send it the fastest mode], I will be preparing you a letter of apology for this letter, so I will have it if I need it. Good-by now, hon, I will love you and do not think you did any thing wrong while in bed with him!
All my love
