Well Darling here is another one of my short letters letting you know that I am well and getting along just fine. I hope that you are well and getting along the same.
I have been busy the last few days and I haven’t been out of camp yet. I only hope that I can find a place for you soon.
I miss you so much that I don’t think I can stand it for very long with out seeing you, dearest.
Werth said that it was getting like winter up around there when he left. I sure wish that I was there. It has been a long time since I saw much winter.
Did you get a letter from Mom yet? Kenny said he got your letter and he was glad to hear from you. I have only received one letter from you so far dear, and I am looking every day for one.
Dearest, is there any good shows up there now? I haven’t seen a show since the one we went to see when I was there.
We have started a N.C.O. class here. It will be someplace to pass the time and make it go faster.
Darling, I have all the papers fixed out for the allotment now. I don’t know how busy it will be before you get it, but I hope it is not very long for I know you can use it.
Please Mary dear, let me know what all is happening up around there, for it seems more like home to me than my home in the states. I know I would sooner leave my home in the States a dozen times than leave you dear, for just a few days. I never had loved any body any more or could Love any body half as much as I do you.
I did not think that I could write to you like I have but it seems that I can not keep from it. I guess it is because I love my wife so much. I think these short letters are like you said the ones you wrote to me were. I don’t know what you think of them. Well Dearest I will have to close now. Answer soon.
All my Love
Your Loving Husband
