December 20, 44
Just a few more lines to let you know that I love you more and more all the time. I am well and I sure hope that you are the same. Darling, I sure hope that you were here with me now. I was dreaming about you last night and now I miss you more than ever. I don’t know if we will be allowed to travel over Christmas and New Years but if we are I will be up there with you for one day, and if we are not I sure will be out hunting a place for you to stay.
I was sure disappointed today. I was looking for a letter from you and none came. I did receive two from home and one from my cousins.
We,, Dopey, have you been talking in your sleep any more? If you have, you had better quit till you get here with me, and I hope that is very soon.
What is the weather like up there now? If it is like you said I will freeze stiff if I go out side when I get there, so have the chair ready in front of the fire place and a big fire going, for you don’t want me to freeze, do you Darling.
I am glad to hear that you have caught up on your work, so you can take off from the office when I am there. I sure would like to see you if you are dressed like you said or any other way. Do you think you will be able to stand up in the snow when I am there, or will you slide and knock my feet from under me like you almost did a few times?
Mary Darling, can you get one of your pictures in natural color for me? I want it to look just like you were when I saw you last, but you are lovely all the time so it won’t help much. Listen Darling, it don’t matter what they look like, I want one ht them.
Mary dearest, you will have to excuse this short letter but I will have to close now. Tell Mom and Jimmie I am sending them all the love that I can after loving you, my dearest darling sweet wife.
All my love now and forever
Your Loving Husband for always.
