Dearest Mary:

Here is a few more lines Darling telling you that I love you so much.  I can fill this letter just saying that but you will get tired of that won’t you Dearest?  I am well and every thing is getting along.  I am in charge now for Werth is on pass and boy I am having some time, but I can make out O.K.  Darling I only wish that that I was up with you again for I never had such a wonderful time in my life as I did when I was stationed up there and got to see you almost every night.  I did not know that I was so lucky Darling, till I left.  Mary I would do almost any thing to be up with you, but washing dishes.  You will forgive me for not helping you won’t you Dearest?  I might think about it sometime,

Mary have you been to any more shows since I was up there?  I went to a good movie here on the base tonight.  The name of it was The Angels Sing.  It sure was a good picture.  If it ever comes up there Darling, go and see it, for it is the best one that I saw for a long time.  Darling did you get our pictures yet? and Please Dearest let me know if you had enough money to get them.

Darling if you get your picture taken with your hair down please get one of them colored.  Will you please, just for me?  It don’t matter if it does take a long time.

Darling have you received any letters from Mom yet?  It has been about three weeks since I heard any thing but I guess I will get a letter before long.  I haven’t even had a letter from you Dearest since I have been back, and Hank has not received any from Betty either, but we will get a lot of them all at once.

Darling I am going to eat the cake, for I can not send it home.  I will send the letter that you wrote and tell them all about it.  I guess that will have to do, won’t it Darling?

How have you been getting along with the twerps in the office since I heard from you last?  I bet you had a time when Anna came back to work.  Tell them the next time I get up there they will have something to talk about.  That is if they know I am there at all.

Darling how have you been feeling the last few weeks?  I hope that your side has not bothered you any more.  Please let me know.  Will you Dearest?  You know by this time don’t you Dearest that you can not keep me from finding out.

Tell Mom and Jimmie that I am sending them my love, and I hope to see them before long.  I will have to close for this time Darling and say Good Night.

All My Love now and for always.
Your Lonely Husband Till I am with You.
Harry.
