Hello Dear

Just a little line to let you know I got your welcome letter? But as I explained to my mother everything is OK because 10 minutes before I got your letter I found a purse with $11.15 in it so I am still a $11.15 up in my expenses for us.
I am glad to hear that you are well rested up. Stay that way till I get back. I saw Ted last night and his finger is in a bandage. I don’t think it was very badly hurt. Jim was with him. I am writing from the “Y” here and it is really a swell place. There is jam and candy all over the place.
Toronto is still a nicer place I think. I saw Ronnie but they are living in the city now. He is going to join up soon but he doesn’t know what the military is really a wold place. I am glad I got through last night safe. I will tell you all about what I saw last night at another time. It reminds me about that joke you told me.
This place is really wide open but believe it or not I was in bed by 12 o’clock or a little later. There are shows open today (Sunday) and the dances open at 2 o’clock this afternoon. I came down with a married couple and we are going home at 5 o’clock.
There are 5 service men (English) besides my room and they are very funny. They are phoning up some girls and they seem to have some difficulty in making them understand their accent.
I have been talking with a navy fellow for the last day and a half who has really been travelling. He would rather be in the Air Force but her cant get out of where he is now.
He is been travelling for the last 2 weeks and all he has eaten is cold canned stuff.
Heavens, when I read the first of your letter I thought something awful had happened. I had envisioned of other things (guess what) but I am glad that you reported that it was nothing serious.
But I told my mother not to worry about some of the money I have been spending. It is not a lot and I will make sure that I am saving what I do not spend.
My inoculations are fine now. I wasn’t actually sick, but I didn’t feel A-1. By the way I don’t know if I told you but Artie Shaw is coming on the 22nd here and Bert Niosi is coming on the 2nd of October. The Modernaires are going to the Palais Royale I hear.
Well I guess I better be on my way, I have a lot to see and I hope I will be hearing from you soon. I think I will swipe a pocket full of candy and buzz off.

Lots of love and love

These kisses are special stock
