Dearest Mary:

I received three letters from you yesterday Darling and I was sure glad to hear from you.

I am well and getting along fine, but I get lonely with out my Darling wife where I can see her every day.

I hope it will not be very long till I am with you again and I don’t think it will.  If I get my [pass] I will be with you as quick as a train can get me with you, my Dearest.

Darling, Hank and I were to the movie here on the base.  It was not so bad but I did not enjoy it with out you.

Darling when your boss says any thing to you again about any body making a fuss just tell him that he better not make you work again when I am up there [or] he will see a fuss like he never saw before.

Darling I am sure glad to hear that you have caught up in your work.  It makes me feel better knowing that you don’t have to work late any more like you did Dearest.

I would have liked to have been there with you when you was learning to play the piana [sic].  Darling I bet you had a time.  I know if I tried it every body would of left the country around the place.

Darling it don’t make me any difference how bad the trip is up there, I will make it, for Dearest, I would travel any way just to see you for just a few minutes for, Darling, you know how I feel about you.  Just seeing you and to be with you for a while means all the world to me.

Dearest you must be getting along fine with Jimmie now that he lets you take his coats off when he comes in.  If I don’t watch out you will have my job and I will get out of practice, and Darling I will just have to be in practice for somebody, and I hope that it will not be too long.

Darling would it make any difference what time of the month I get up there?  I think you will know what I mean.  When I get there Dearest I suppose you will be working.  If you are I will go past just across the street from the office so you will see me and quit working.

Darling I liked the pictures you drew in this letter.  I only wish we could take a picture of him right now.  Dearest I would be the luckiest guy in the world, or I would think so anyway.

Darling you wanted me to write a bigger letter than the other ones, but Dearest there is not much to write about around here.  I can tell you what I think better than writing so I will wait & will tell you.

Darling the reason I said any thing to your Mother about you the day you went to work was because you know how she talked when you did not get to work early.  I just done it because I can not stand to have you getting the dickens Dearest.  I can never stand to have any body say any thing about you now or any time.  It hurts me a lot I would a lot sooner for them to say that about me.

Darling when you answer this will you please send me Rod’s address and I will try to write him a few lines.  Dearest will you type it out so I will be sure and get it just right.

Dearest I am going to have to say Good Night.  Darling I will be thinking of you every minute day and night for now and always.

Your Lonely Loving Husband
For now & always
All my Love
