Jan. 9, 1945
I received your letter yesterday Darling and I was sure glad to hear from you. It was the one you wrote on New Years.
I am well and getting along the best I can with out you, Dear. I sure hope that you are getting along allright and your cold is better when you get this. You will have to forgive me for not writing you last night darling but I had to go on K.P. at seven and I did not finish till five this morning.
I guess you will think I am a sleepy head but I just got up at one thirty and I am still sleepy.
Darling I sure wish that I could have been with you on New Years for you must have had some time.
Dearest please don’t worry about what you did at the party. I know Darling that I can trust my Dearest wife not to do any thing wrong. If you had a good time it is all right with me, only I wish that I would have been the one that you were kissing instead of some one else for Darling I miss you so awful much.
Boy Margaret sure picked some time in the morning to walk up to the hill, but maybe she got what she was looking for and something besides. Darling if I could have been there with you we would of not walked to the hill or any place. I would a lot sooner sit in front of the fire place with Mrs. H. Cole.
I am getting homesick for you and the nice cozy place in front of the fire with you on my lap and to feel your sweet lips pressing on mine. I would just give any thing to be there now. Wouldn’t you Darling?
I sure hope the Sailor makes out with his girl friend for I know what it is like having to wait for some one that means every thing to you and you love so very very much.
Darling you will never have to worry about making me a wonderful wife, for Dearest you are that already.
Dearest I know how you feel about what we were talking about, for I would like to have someone my self and maybe the next time I see you it will be all right. Do you think so Darling, only dearest why would you have to get away from Dundee and not let any body know? What difference does it make to them? But Darling I guess I know how you feel and I will try hard to have you a place so you can be with me then if not before. What would you say if it was Virginia that came?
Please tell me Dearest what they have been saying to you, will you Mary, please. Darling I am thinking of you all the time I could never be selfish with you. I want you to have a wonderful time and I could not think of doing any thing to hurt you. That is one of the reasons, Darling. I get to thinking what you would have to go through and it would be hard for me Dearest even if you said it was all right.
Listen Darling you don’t have to worry about me losing sleep. I think you was awake twice as much as I was the last time. Wasn’t that right, Dopey?
Listen who is talking about sleeping till 2 o’clock. I don’t think I was alone, and another thing I did not sleep all the time, did I Darling?
I can not forget that I have a wife even when I am asleep even when I am a good many miles away from her for I am thinking of you Darling all the time.
Darling I will tell you who the some body is when I see you again. Dearest are the six we are getting at one time we will get them on wholesale price so that won’t cost so much. Will it?
Well Dearest you said to let you know to tell me what Margaret as Mom so be sure and tell me when you answer, now please don’t forget. Will you? Darling I bet she would look funny if you scalped her. Don’t you think? If you start that I better watch my self when I come to see you for it would be too bad if I lost my scalp.
I received three letters from Mom yesterday and she wants to know why you don’t write oftener. She keeps asking how long it will be before you can come home. Darling I sure wish that I could tell her when but I don’t know what I would do if I could not get to be able to see my Sweet Little wife once in a while even if for only a few minutes. Do you think you would like to go across. If I was back home now and you were with me Dearest I would sure be happy.
Mom said that my cousin shot a big buck deer. It had bigger horns than the one in the picture I have.
I am not worrying about the deers any more for I have the Dearest Dear in the whole world to me and I love her so much. Darling I will have to close for this time, and if I get another letter from you today I will write another.
All my love
Your Lonely Loving Husband
