Dearest Mary

Well Darling just a few more lines to let you know that I am still alive.  I am thinking of you a lot.  I am sorry Darling that I can not get up there to be [with] you my dearest on Christmas but I will be there a few days after if nothing happens.  If I am not there Darling I will be looking all over England for a place for Mrs. Cole to live.

I received two letters from you yesterday but Darling I missed out on letters today.  I received a letter from Kenney today and he wanted to know how we were getting along.  He also sent me some Jap money.  I will let you see it when I come up.

Darling I have received every letter you wrote up to the 14th of this month.  So far Dearest I have only missed one day writing to you since I have been here, and Darling I will do my best to write every day.  I know what your letters mean to me.  Your letters only take six or seven days to get here.

Mary Dearest every thing I have told you so far has been the truth.  I haven’t been out of this place since I got here, and not even a day off so far Darling.  I only wish that you were here for I do need you an awful lot for you are the only one in this world that means so much to me.  Darling I would give any thing to have you here with me when I get my three day pass, so I could be with you all the time.

Darling you could not be punished for any thing.  There is nothing in this world that you do that is wrong, and I love you so much, and Mary dearest please don’t do like you said for I want your hair just as it is for I think it is beautiful.

Mary tell Jimmy to have his train running good when I get there.  I might have some sweets for him when I see him, and listen dopey, you are not to take it away from him like you used to.  Do you remember?

Well Darling I will have to close now.  Answer soon.

Your Loving husband

PS. Here are a few clipping out of the Stars and Stripes.
