May 11, 1943
Tuesday 10 p.m.
I’m still loving you so much – and even more as time goes by. I sure do miss you, Honey: but it’s going to be so wonderful to have you home again some day soon. I appreciated every moment we did have together and know I’ll love every moment with you that is to come, because I do love you, Darling.
Audrey came home today raving about how terribly small and tacky Mpls. looks compared to New York. She had a wonderful time, and says it sure is a let down to come home. Of course, it is nice to have a home to return to, but boy, it was a let down for me to start living the old routine all over again without you!
Marge, Helena, and I had fun down town last night. Had our dinner together and then saw a cute movie, but I’ve seen enough pictures now to last me a long time. We’re all planning on playing golf this summer. We girls back home have to think of things for amusement, but, Honey, it seems so dull here without you. I mean that too; because the only time I truly enjoy myself is when I have you right here beside me enjoying the same things.
Helen Joeck will be over tomorrow for lunch and the afternoon. I always like visiting with her. If it is nice out, we’ll probably hike a bit.
Thanks, Sweetheart, for being such a wonderful hubby – so understanding and so lovable – you’re all I’ve ever wanted in a man – and I wanted a lot!
