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
