Dearest Mary:

I haven’t much to write tonight Darling but I am going to try any way.

I did not receive any letters from you yet Dearest but I am looking for some tomorrow.  I sure have been busy the last few days but it helps make the time go a lot quicker till I can see you again, for Darling I miss you so awful much.  I hope Darling that we can be together before long to stay.  When we are together for good Darling it will be the best times of our lives.

How is every body getting along up there in good old Dundee?  That seems more like home up there to me than it did when I was at home back in the States, but you know the reason for that don’t you Dearest.  It is because there is a certain person up there that is very dear to me called Mrs. Harry V. Cole.  Do you know any body by that name up around there, Darling?  If you don’t Dearest I will show her to you when I see you again.  Are you getting along allright since I was up there with you?  I get to wondering but you know how it is when you don’t get to hear from the one person in this world that means every thing to you.

Have you received any more letters from your Father since I was up there Darling?  I wish that I was up there with you when he comes home.  Did he say when he thought he would get home?  Let me know when you hear, for I sure want to meet him.  Please let me know Darling if you got the money that I sent you Dearest and let me know how much you need will you Darling?  I will send you what you have to have.  If I don’t have it right away, I will send it to you as soon as I get it, for Darling I will do any thing for you for I love you so much and you mean every thing to me.

Did you receive any letters from home yet?  It has been three weeks since I received a letter from home and I haven’t received a letter from Kenny since I saw you last.  The only things that I have been getting is news papers, about two months old.

What is the weather like up around there now?  Is it still like it was when I was up there?

Darling you should of seen me taking a bike ride this morning.  I was going to work on Werth’s bike and all at once it flew out from under me and you should of seen me going up the road sliding on my back with the bike on top.  I had to laugh my self.  I hope you don’t go sliding like that.

Darling I am going to say Good Night now and finish this.  I will send you a few words tomorrow.

All my love Darling now and forever
Your Loving Husband
Lonely till I am with you Darling
Harry.
