Spitball Army

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

April 11, ’43

Dearest:  I love you still with all my heart.  Just a note before dreamland – witnessed a splendid view of the No. Lights to-night on our way home.  They were beautiful, reminding me of your lovely “Aurora Borealis.”  Dad and I were over to Max’s.  I went early in the afternoon and hiked with Max.  Then Dad joined us later.

Forgot to tell you that I was given a smallpox vaccination at N.W. Hosp.  They asked me if I wanted one so took advantage of their offer; also got a free lunch.  Saw the ass’t staff worker’s uniform today and it was darling.  Hope I’ll pass the exam so I can see what it’s like to wear one.

Sweetheart, I think you’d like my new red beret (hat) and the cute, but practical, black shoes I bought.  They’re very comfortable and attractive too – a lower heel also.

Had your two overcoats, tuxedo, and other black suit out in the sun today, airing them out – brushed them and then put them in moth proof bags; so they’re set now until you come back.  Hurry back, won’t you, Sweetheart.  I’m so anxious to see and be with you again.  You’re a wonderful lover – so thoughtful and kind – affectionate and romantic.  I love you and miss you more than I can ever say.

With all my love,
Bev
