Hello Sweetheart,

     Surprise – I’m going to write a letter.  I love you Sweetheart.

     I’m glad you reminded me of something last night.  In my excitement of getting out, I had forgotten all about it.  I was thinking only of getting back home to you Sweetheart.  I know you are rather disgusted with me, but can you forget that and think it over?  I would still like to see some of New York and Niagara Falls.  We could arrange it if you would come up here.  I could let you know when I was getting ready to leave Brooklyn and while I was in Bainbridge, you could come up and get a hotel room.  We could look around New York a couple of days and then go on and see the Falls a couple days.  We couldn’t take too long though.  I will have to report to my draft board within 10 days after I get discharged.  Do you think you will feel like traveling then?  You say the word, Sweetheart and we’ll do it.  I’m sorry it slipped my mind.  I wanted to do it when we first talked of it and I still do.  What do you say?

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