July 2, 1944
I’ve got only a few minutes. Just enough time to tell you I love you.
You make me very unhappy at times. When I read parts of your last letter, it was one of those times. Sweetheart, I want to come back to Indiana. You know it would be Forget it. I’ll see you in L.A. July 29. That is if I get my furlough as soon as the platoon breaks up. I hope I do. Don’t misunderstand me Sweetheart, I want you and we’ll have a swell time on our honeymoon in California.
Gotta go now.
I love you.
I love you, Sweetheart.
