April 18, 1946
What a surprise! I got a letter this morning. That was an interesting clipping you sent. One look at that and I know I’m not going back to school. I wouldn’t live that way if I was single. Anyway, I’m not and I wouldn’t go up there without you; so I guess we will wait in Indianapolis until something developes someplace.
There isn’t anything new. I’m just eating and sleeping and waiting. Waiting to get my hands on you. When I do, I’ll literally squeeze the love right out of you. You will be worse than “drooly.”
I love you with all my heart
