Another day is gone. That puts us just 24 hours closer to being together. it won’t be very long now. A couple more weeks here, a few days in Brooklyn and a couple days in Bainbridge, Md. Then comes Indiana and you Sweetheart. I love you so much.
Huh – – if anything is running through my mind, I’d like to know about it. Then I would have something to write about. I can’t think of a darned thing though. I’ll just make this an “I love you” note and call you Sunday. O.K.?
I love you with all my heart
I love you
