I love you and do miss you so much. This is my first Vmail letter. I have several other letters written and already to send; so, Darling, you can send me your address anytime. I’m so anxious to hear from you & will enjoy your letters so much, I know. Do hope everything is all right with you.
June & I had our interviews with the Red Cross Staff today, & they will send us a card telling us when to report for their course. I think it will be interesting work & am looking forward to doing my part in this war. I shopped around with June. She bought a new Spring suit, and I did get myself a cute white blouse to wear with my old suit. I do have plenty to wear now, but do want a new black straw hat & (dare I mention it??) a pair of black shoes. It gives me a “lift” to have something new once in a while; though I’m not a bit enthused about buying clothes when you’re not here to notice them.
We’re waiting for Aud. to get home for supper. I have things ready, but will have to warm them up now, as had expected her earlier.
The only objection I have to this V-mail is that there really isn’t much space for a letter, & am afraid I won’t receive long letters from you; but then, if you write often enough, that will make up for it. Right now, I’d be more than satisfied with even a little short note from you. Darling, I do love you more everyday in every way. Please be careful. I’m waiting anxiously for you & everyday will bring us that much closer.
