Hello, my Sweetheart: I love you.
You made me feel very happy today, Darling, as rec’d two more of your grand letters, dated March 26 and 31. All-right, Hon, I’ll use V-Mail from now on – though I hardly get started on a letter, and it’s time to quit.
I’m glad you know why you love me. I’ve always known why I love you. – Because you’re wonderful in so many ways. You’ve always been so kind and thoughtful – affectionate and loving, too. Thank you for always being such a gentleman and always saying nice things to me when I really deserved a licking!
Be careful of those swamps! Did you get the pheasant? A rabbit dashed out of our garage as I put the car away today. It sort of startled me. I saw a pileated woodpecker also today by the creek. I’m going to miss all this wild life when we move up north.
A friend, who is also a Red Cross enthusiast, asked me to study with her to-night; so must be getting along.
Yes, Honey, it was wonderful to be together for those eleven months. Wonder what it’s like to live more than a year together! I know I’ll love it and can hardly wait! You are so grand to be with. Hurry back. I’ve got bushels of flute dances all saved up.
With my love,
