My Dearest Wife:

Just a few more lines to let you know that I haven’t forgotten you and that I miss you so much.  I can hardly wait to see you.  But I guess I can stand missing you for a few days more.  I will be with you on Christmas.  Maybe for only a few minutes but Darling, I love you so much I would come to see you if it was only a few seconds.

I think I told you that Werth was back.  You might get to see a lot of the fellows up around there before long.

I am sorry Mary Darling, that I have not found a place for you to stay.  I haven’t been out of this place since I have been here.  If I could get any time I would look around for a place.  I miss you Dearest, as much as you miss me, and I will do all I can to get you a place to stay for I want to be with you all the time.

Mary, the other letters that I received were from Mom and Kenney, Darling.  I received another letter from my Darling sweet Wife today.  That makes two that I have to answer after I get this one finished.  I might just answer all [of] them in one.  What would you say, Dopey darling?  I can hardly write here tonight every body is talking about going on a pass.

How is the snow up there now?  You might have your chance to put snow down my back, but Darling when you do that you better start running for I sure can throw the snow.

How is every body up around there?  Tell Jimmy to watch the door, I might walk in just any time.

Dearest, this is a crazy letter but you know how it is writing when a gang is just raising the dickens.

Darling, I am just wishing and waiting till I get to see you.  I love you more all the time.  I will have to close this now dearest.  I am sending you all my love and a lot of kisses.

All my love forever
Your Loving husband
Harry.
