Apr. 29, ’43
I love you, and am wondering how you are to-night. This has been a very dreary, rainy day; so was glad that June had invited me to go to her church for lunch and a food demonstration. Different products were sold, out of which I purchased some of Watkins’ products. They really sell a variety of things – besides food. I got some shampoo, and some moth crystals.
Sent the Apr. Readers’ Digest on to you as rec’d. A duplicate of the same issue here. I started to read the magazine which I sent to you, so just have part of it marked. I wrote to them (Digest Co.) asking why we hadn’t rec’d. the Apr. issue, but it had been sent to Brawley; though they have my change of address by now.
Good old Brawley. It was nice there, but I did enjoy living on the beach so much more. Of course, I wouldn’t care where I lived as long as I was with you. It could be the worst place in the whole world – yet I’d be the happiest, if you were only there – & that’s exactly how I feel.
Haven’t had a letter from you for almost two weeks. You’re still writing every day aren’t you, Honey – just think – married 2 yrs. and 1 month today.
