Sorry, no stamps. This is about the best I can do for the time being. The paper will determine the shortness; you will have to pass judgment on the sweetness. I just wanted to let you know that I’m O.K. I miss you a lot Sweetheart and, in case you didn’t know it, I’m very much in love with you. Keep waiting for me Sweetheart. I’m coming back as soon as I can find the way. Hope it isn’t too long.
I love you with all my heart.
