[Written to Alice in Acton, Indiana.  Return addressed: Richard, Ward 11, U.S.N.H., St. Albans, L.I., N.Y.  Postmarked at Jamaica, N.Y., on 25 Feb 1946 at 1 P.M.]

Feb. 25, 1946

Hello Sweetheart,

     I’m afraid this is will be just a note to tell you that I love you.  There isn’t any news to tell you.  I haven’t received any mail since I wrote yesterday morning and all that I have done since then is eat, sleep, play cards, go to the show, and wash clothes.  It was some show.  I know that you have heard or seen it advertised quite a bit.  It’s Clark Gable’s first picture since he got out of the Army.  The name is “Adventure” with Greer Garson.  It has everything – comedy, disgustfulness, sadness, and happiness.

     Now I’ve run out of something to say.  Should I ask “How’s Richard?  How’s his arm? – -etc.”?  Somehow I don’t think that would do so I guess I’d just better quit and try to call you to-morrow night.  O.K.?  I love you Sweetheart and I miss you very much.

     Good-Night Sweetheart
          I love you with all my heart
               Pleasant dreams
                    Goodnight Sweetheart
