Dear Mary Darling,
Well here is another one my little letters again, Darling, just to let you know that I am thinking about you all the time, even when I am asleep. I am getting along here so far but I will feel a lot better when I get a place down here for you to stay, and I sure hope that is soon.
Oh Mary Darling, I sure hope and pray that nothing happens to keep me away from you on Christmas. If nothing happens, I will be there on the first train that comes in to Dundee from this direction. Dearest, I can hardly wait till I can hold you in my arms and feel your sweet lips pressing on mine. Darling, when I fall asleep at night, I dream of you and when I wake up and find that you are not there, well I can not explain just how I feel but I think you know.
A couple of the fellows left here today and poss. and they were coming up that way. Let me know if you see them.
Well Darling, I have rested up since I walked to camp so if you see something coming up the street sometime like superman that will be your husband so don’t be surprised.
Darling, if you don’t like to go out with Betty, please don’t go just because I told you to. I only thought Darling, that it would help pass the time quicker till I could be with you.
Listen Dopey, if you do like you said, the fellow better have a strong neck for I will wring it for sure, but I am not worrying Dearest, for I know that you will not do that, and you won’t have to worry for you are the only girl that ever meant any thing to me and the only one I ever will go with or even talk to.
Mary Dearest, I am going to have to close this for now. It is almost twelve o’clock at night and I have to go to work early. I want to go to sleep and dream of my adorable wife.
Answer as soon as you can, darling.
Your Loving husband for always
