Just a few lines to let you know that I am well and still getting along.
Darling, I hope that you are allright and I hope that I can be with you before very long. I did not receive any letter from you today, are you allright? I was worrying about you, dearest, I thought you might be sick or something.
My dearest, I will never forget to write to you every day. Your letters mean a lot to me.
That was some story, and Darling he sure must have had a smart parrot! What do you think?
Well darling, I suppose that you are working late these last few nights. I sure hope that you are not working late when I get up there if I do. So if you are working late or working at all you better tell them that you will not be there at all, not as long as I am there any way.
Darling, I wish that I was able to tell you how much I miss you but I just miss you so much dearest that I can not find words to tell you.
Listen Darling, please go to see Paton like you was supposed to or do you want me to take you to see him. If you don’t get to see him I will take you to see one my self when you get down here with me.
Darling, did you get the money that I sent you? I put a pound in one letter and I sent the paper in another.
Dearest, I liked the picture that you drew, the only thing that was wrong was that there was supposed to be two in place of one. Isn’t that right? And I hope that it will not be long. Is that what you want?
Did you get any letters from Mom yet? I received a letter from her today and she said that she received one from you. It sure takes a long time to get across, Mary. I am sorry about this short crazy letter, but I will do better the next time, I hope. Darling, I am sending you all my love now, forever and ever.
Your Loving Husband
