Feb. 9th 1945
Just a couple lines to let you know that I am well and getting along about the same as always. Darling I hope that you are well and getting along fine.
I did not receive any letters from you today Darling, so I suppose that I will receive a couple tomorrow. I am sorry I had to disappoint you the other day by not getting up there but, Darling, it was not my fault. I am supposed to have my pass on the 19th of this month, and Dearest, I will be there for sure then.
Darling, how are you getting along at your new job? Do you like it better than Draffins? Darling, do you know if it would be hard to get out of the job that you have now? Let me know if you can, Darling? If you can be sure and let me know as soon as you can, I can get you a job here for about two pound ten a week and I know where there is an apartment that I think I can get. If you can get out of your job be sure and let me know and I will try and get the place to stay and the job. But Darling, don’t quit where you are till you let me know so I can get things fixed up. I will tell you more about it when I get up there. Dearest, I love you so much that nothing seems right with out you close to me. I would give any thing to be up there with you now. I still can see you the way you looked when I was up there last. I only wish I could love you in my arms now.
Dearest, I have the order all ready for what we both want. Darling, I think we will be the happiest people in the world when it is filled. I guess I will have to watch out whose neck I break. So Mary Darling, I will only order one at a time. I like any name you say, darling. I think all three that you said are wonderful, and it will be a wonderful time when there is something to go with them.
I received another letter from Mom today, Dearest. There was a lot of snow back there when she wrote but I suppose it is all melted by rain. Mom said to give you her love and to kiss you once for her. I don’t know if I will have time to or not. I will be busy kissing you for my self, don’t you think so, Darling. I am only writing a short letter tonight, Darling, but they are big pages. Please Darling, let me know about the job as soon as you can.
I am going to have to say good night now, Darling. I hope and pray all the time that we can be together soon. All my love, Dearest, for now and forever.
Your Loving and Lonely husband
