Hello Darling:

I’ve just finished reading your lovely little letter and as usual things are pretty slack and I am writing you in time to catch the mail as 12:30.
Well darling I think that things are pretty well “in the bag”. I applied for my leave and for permission to get married and all we have to do now dear is hold tight. I don’t think that I will have any trouble even though I did say in my last letter that there might be no leaves in August. They are pretty good here and when they find out that I want my leave to get married I think that I won’t have any trouble.
Darling, I think that I am the happiest fellow in the world right now. Your pictures I think are pretty swell. I honestly think that you are getting prettier all the time. I just wish that the picture of you and the baby was really mine. I’m so glad that you received so many nice things but darling you really do deserve them because you have been such a sweet and true girl and you know they are the ones that always deserve and get the best.
I went to Dartmouth Air Station Sunday and got a flip in a Carolina Flying Boat boy are they certainly an awesome plane. We went as far as Newfoundland and came back. Just think dear it is really only 6 hours flying time from here to Toronto. That makes it seem an awful lot closer.
Darling, I will send you the money in my next letter because I want to her this letter away right now and as my money is down in our hut I wouldn’t be able to get it away in time. But we have lots of time yet.
The weather here the last couple of days cant be beaten. Lots of sun and truly warm too.
I know all about your shower, but I can keep a secret so I did not breath a word to anybody.
Well darling it is only 4 weeks more that seems hardly any time at all after waiting so long you as I have. It was for the best though dear wasn’t it. We really have a lot to look forward to and we have so much in common and so much to give one another. But then you will have to put up with me for a long time after our wedding.
I saw a picture with a few of the fellows on Saturday and it was not that bad to be honest. Hedy Lamar is certainly a nice looking woman herself. I think some of what is on Hedy is artificial but what do I know.
I was just figuring out dear, we only have to write 8 letters more and then I hope to be home when you think of that it doesn’t seem to very long. But I still am afraid that July will go by so slowly then June.
Well darling I’m almost ashamed that I have so little to say in my letters but I will say that I love you more and more each day and I hope that I will receive a bigger letter from you than this one.
Lots and Lots of love dear from the bottom of my heart
