Somewhere in America, there’s a street named after my Dad.

Dearest Mary:

Just a few more lines to let you know that I am well and getting along the best I can.  Darling, I sure hope this finds you well and getting along allright.  I haven’t received any more letters from you since the 23rd.  Darling, I just can’t tell you how much I miss you.  I only wish that I was back in England so I could have you with me again.  Oh, Darling, I love you so awful much.  I only hope I receive a letter from you today.  Darling, I was working last night but I have tonight off.  Dearest, do you get to see Betty and Billie any more?  Hank came through here last night on his way back to Barrington.  I only wish I would be back there.  Darling, please tell me how you are, and how you are getting along.  Please tell me every thing, will you, Mary Dearest.  I am sitting here now all alone.  Every body is working.  I only wish you could be here with me now just so I could hold you tight in my arms and be able to hold you tight and kiss you and just keep on kissing you.  Dearest, have you found out yet for sure if we will be lucky enough to get our prayers answered this time?  I am praying every day, Darling.

Darling, have you got all the papers filled out that you had with you at Millfield?  I haven’t been in to see about them yet.  I am mailing [are] the paper you was going to send me.  Darling, if you get back to Glasgow, please let me know if you find out any thing more.  Hank said something about Betty being put on the shipping list to go back to the States.  Do you know anything about it?  Dearest, will you find out all you can about getting every thing fixed so you can get back.  I just can’t stop worrying about you.  I guess you know how it is when you love some one so awful much.  Mary Darling, please tell me how you are getting along there at home.  Will you, Mary Dearest?  I know how you feel about staying there if something does happen, so if any thing does let me know and I will send you all the money I can so you can stay some place else if you must.

Mary, did you ever get the other picture yet?  When you do, don’t forget to send me one.  Darling, if you can will you get me a picture of Jimmie?  I miss him a lot.  I wish I were back up there with you again.  I haven’t found out yet if we will be stationed here after our T.D. is up or not.  I will let you know just as soon as I find out.

Well I guess I have about run out of news for this time.  The other shift is coming back to the barracks now so it is getting kind of noisy around here now.

Darling, how is Mom and Jimmy getting along?  Tell them that I said Hello.  I miss seeing them a lot, but Darling you are the one that means every thing in this world to me.  Mary Dearest, I am thinking of you every second, and wondering how you are and how you are getting along.  Please Darling let me know every thing when you answer this, and every thing that is happening around Dundee.

I will have to close for this time, Darling.  I only hope I get a letter from you tonight.

I love you with all my heart Darling.  I pray that we are together for good very soon.

All my love for now and for ever and ever.

Your Loving and very Lonely husband.
Harry
