Just a couple more lines Darling to let you know that I am well and getting along as I can with out you. I am sorry that I did not write to [you] last night Darling. I hope that you are well and getting along all right. I only hope that I am up there with you in a few more days. It seems like a year since I was up there last. I never missed any one so much as I do you Darling. I was looking for a letter from you today Dearest, but none came. I hope that I get a couple tomorrow. The last one I received was wrote on the eighth. How is every one up around there now, Darling? I hope Jimmy is over his cold now. Darling, when are you going to let me know if you will get off from work when I am up there? Please Darling, let me know if you can. How is your Father getting along? or haven’t you had any more letters from him? Dearest, we will see if we can get what we both want when I come up this time. It will not make any difference what kind we get will it, Darling? I only hope you know what I am talking about. Do you? Dearest, I only wish that I could be there with you right this minute. I would like to hold you tight to me, and just feel your sweet lips on mine. Darling, how are you and Anna getting along at your jobs? Do you have lots of work now? For the last few nights, I have been finding out what it is like to work both day and night. That was the reason I did not get to write to you last night, Darling. I did write a letter to Mom. I had eleven letters from her so I thought I better get started answering them. Darling, have you had time to see any good shows? I have been to two here on the base but I can’t think of the names of them now. I would like to see a good movie again so when I get up there this time we will go and see one, Darling. Well, how is Alex getting along? Does he learn as fast as you and Anna did? Darling, I heard the song again tonight and it made me miss you more than ever. Do you hear it very much up there?
I guess I am the last one here in the barracks writing tonight. Hank and Werth are in bed already. Have you saw Betty since Hank came back from up there? I wonder what she thinks of Hank getting his stripes taken away. I know about how he feels. I just hope that I don’t do any thing to lose mine. I want to get more in place of losing them. Kenny has made a stripe at last. He is still out in the same place he was. I suppose he is seeing a lot of action by the sound of the news broadcaster.
Darling, I am hardly able to keep my mind on what I am writing tonight for thinking of you. I miss you so much, Dearest. I am hoping this was is over soon so we can be together all the time. Darling, tell Mom and Jimmy that I think of them both a lot.
All my love, Darling, forever.
I will be with you soon.
Your Loving and Lonely Husband
