I love you – It’s so grand thinking about the day when you’ll be returning. In the meantime, it’s up to me to keep busy and try always to be happy; however, I know you’re able to face whatever comes. I can tell by your letters that you’re enjoying the country immensely. I’m so glad – and say, if you keep on doing all that good cooking – pheasant, French Fries, and what have you – am afraid you’ll never be satisfied with “your truly’s.”
Finished my project at N.W. today, and am now going to do other work there; mainly handling correspondence and student nurses.
Aud. and I hiked down to Lake Harriet to-night – just a nice hike – about 4 miles round trip. Some youngster is reported missing in Mpls. – not sure whether he drowned or was kidnapped, but they were going to use a powerful light to-night in the water, and see if they could locate his body – we came home before they started. We really had gone only for the hike and then came upon a big crowd gathered round.
Sweetheart, I do miss you so, and long for your fond caresses and kisses.
Thanks for another wonderful letter today.
