I just received your last letter this morning dear and as I am always on time answering them (Ahem) I’ll do it right now, answering it I mean.
Well it is Wednesday and things are just about the same down here. Saturday night I went to the Forum but darling I think of you all the time at these dances and I really don’t have a good time at all. I left at intermission on Saturday night even though the Air Force band was playing. Sunday morning I was up bright and early and went to Church that makes four times in a row that I have gone, aren’t I the good boy. But you know what I pray for dear and that is that this darn war will be over soon and that I can get home to my darling wife and I think if you both have enough faith that it might happen sooner than we expect. You mentioned in your letter that you were glad that I thought of you once and a while dearest, I think of you all the time. I just realize all that we are missing not being together but maybe it is all for the best especially the way you are right now.
Sunday afternoon Norm, Jack and I went to the Capital and saw “Lets Face It” with Bob Hope and I never laughed so much in all my life, it really is a good picture. Sunday night I went to the station show, so you can see I’m keeping up on all my movies. Monday night I went to the station show again and saw some spooky picture with John Carradine that I liked but you know how much I really do like mysteries.
Last night they had a dance for the staff in the Gym and I was going to go but I decided that I would take it easy and go to bed early. So I went and spent the night in our lounge and caught up on my reading.
I am glad to hear that everything is progressing favourably and I’ll just leave everything up to you dear as far as going to the doctor and quitting your job, but if you don’t feel up to it dear for goodness sake don’t work.
I guess Ma Booth is looking after you pretty well dear and I certainly am glad that you are at home rather than down here even though we are apart because you will have the proper care and rest that you need and fortunately the proper food and that does not mean a meal of cucumbers HA HA.
I figure that the “bundle” should arrive in April sometime do you know when dear? Do you have any trouble getting a room in a hospital and what hospital would you like? Your Mother will know all the angles and what clothes etc. to get. but I guess that we can talk it over when I come down for Christmas as well as a few other things.
I am glad to hear that Jan and Ray are pretty well settled up in New Glasgow. I was just thinking that something must be wrong there because they have been married and been together longer than we have but I don’t think that she is the type to give up without a fight. I think that the Kernagains had the same thing happen to them as we did dear because she was off work for week or so and she got the same kind of pills from the hospital as I did so I just drew my own conclusions.
I have been going to write Mrs Dean since I came back but I did not know if she was still up at the lake or not.
I don’t know if I mentioned in my last letter that I received your Pop’s candy and as usual it was pretty swell. Thank your Pop for me will you dear?
Don’t forget those pictures you promised to send me dear. We will have to start an album for all those pictures that we have taken and I guess you will let me know about having a big picture taken. I would like one of those especially for my own locker, so have one taken as soon as possible.
Well darling I think that is about all for now dear but I will drop you another line about Friday or Saturday so darling, until then to my very best pin up girl and the sweetest little wife and mummy-to-be in all the world.
First let me start by saying that I am sorry that I have not written as much as I usually do, but I have been so busy with work and Mom and Dad and so many other things that I will detail you in this nice long letter. I certainly hope that you can forgive, and I will make sure that I make it up to you once you come back home at Christmas. Can you forgive me darling?
I hope you have been keeping well and keeping yourself busy as in everyone of your letters it seems that there is nothing much happening down there. I can tell you that I have been feeling right as rain the last couple of days and that I have been drinking lots and lots of milk they might even start calling be Bessie the cow. I eat lots of green vegetables and make sure that I do not have too many sweets after supper, but you know dear how hard that is for me. Mother has been taking very good care of me and we other sneak away for a few talks about what is to come and how I should be feeling at certain times. I know it is still early yet but darling I cannot wait for this little thing to arrive.
Darling I ran into Jan on the Danforth and we decided to catch up over something to eat Friday night. So right after work I went up to meet her and we spent almost 3 hours sitting and talking and really just giggling like little school girls. However there was really not that much that we would have been laughing at considering how tough she has had it over the last 6 months. She and Ray have been fighting all the time over where they are going to live seeing as he is going to be posted out east. She was determined to stay here in Toronto and Ray told her that if she did not go she would soon be a divorcee. Darling can’t imagine anyone speaking like that, I know that we have our arguments but never have we spoken to each other that way., I think it is because we have such a level of respect for each other and that we value our marriage so much and that we have so much love for each other that we would never do such a thing. Anyways, Jan finally decided that she would not wait for him in Toronto and they are moving to New Glasgow next week. You know Jan dear, she is a person who will not give in but this time she knew it was all for the best.
I am glad dear that you are going tot he movies so often and that you are enjoying most of the pictures that you are going to see and that you let me know which ones I should go and see. Also dear, it really touches my heart that you think of me once and a while and that you think of that we will do once we are together permanently and not have to worry about going back and forth from another town to see each other. It certainly will be swell once we are both living under the same roof, and I really do not care where that is as long as we are together, the three of us.
Bill darling, I have been thinking about what I am going to do about work and if I should stay on or should I just leave the job now. I know that the money that is coming in certainly does help my parents with some of the expenses but I am thinking that if everything goes well as we planned that I might not want to work during Christmas when it is so busy and they make us work on the weekends and nights. But I will make that decision later once everything is worked out.
I am going to make sure that I take some lovely pictures for you dear and that they show all of me and not just little pictures. Dear what do you want with them anyways, where are they going to hang? Are you going to share them with the other fellows or are they just for you?
I have not heard anything from Marg for a few weeks now I think and I am getting a little worried about her. I hope hat she is liking being out there and that Ted is treating her right. Maybe she has a job now but I am so anxious to hear form her. Everyone here is doing fine dear and I will go up and see your Mom and Pop this week. Maybe your Aunt will be there seeing as when I did speak to your Mother on the phone she is always dropping in to see your folks.
With that darling I am going to close now as I am getting sleepy and as you say I need my rest to make sure everything is OK. So dear from the bottom of my heart I love you very much and I am missing you very much and I am thinking of you always.
Love from your wee wife,
Well here it is Tuesday afternoon dear and I have not had a letter from you since last week. I’m a little bit worried too. I hope you are alright dear because if you miss a few days I think that you might have been having some more troubles like before. But I imagine that perhaps the mail has been held up.
I haven’t been doing very much since I last wrote dear. Saturday night I went to the Forum but it was too crowded and I came back early. Sunday I went to the Capital and saw “Stormy Weather” and I really thought it was great especially with Cab Calloway so don’t miss it dear if you get the chance and Sunday night they had a double feature at the station show and so I went. Last night was my first night on duty watch and as I can’t get off the station I played snooker with Norm. They had Yankee Doodle Dandy on the station theatre and as I saw it before I didn’t bother going.
Tonight they are having a dance in the drill hall but it is pretty warm and I don’t think that I will go. I wrote my Aunt yesterday dear and I certainly had a tough time thinking of enough to put in.
Well how is everything with you dear? I hope that you are getting your milk and vegetables every day. I certainly miss you an awful lot dear, oh well it will only be about 3.5 months dear before I see you and then I should be able to get home for 5 days (I hope). It will certainly be nice dear but I shouldn’t think about it especially when you say how nice an armful you will be and I think that an armful of you would be about the nicest thing I could ask for right now.
I guess you haven’t given much thought to where you will stay after you have the little “bundle” comes but I think that it would be nice if you stayed at Mom and Pop’s place dear I know that it is up to you darling but that will be about the time that your Mother will be moving and there will be all that extra stuff and confusion to deal with. I know my Mother and Pop would be tickled pink to have you dear. But as I said before it is up to you and I guess that we had better wait and see anyways.
I see Jack Dowds once and a while but I hardly ever see him at night. Had has a girl you know and I imagine that she is something like the one he had on Gerard St. in Toronto, and you know what I mean. He likes the girls who are fast and fancy free so that they never want to stick around too long.
We have our Snack Bar going full blast now dear and I get a butterscotch sundae every day and are they ever good. I should be putting weight on in no time.
I wish you would take a roll of film of just you dear and send them down. Nice big pictures I mean, those other ones were swell except they were so small you don’t know how much I like to get them dear, they really keep my morale up.
The way that the war news has been reported over the last few days things are looking pretty good. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be home for good this time next year just the three of us? I would like to go to Haultain for a couple of months to our cottage, it would certainly be like heaven and there isn’t any reason we couldn’t. Darling, I love you so much I would do anything for you.
Did you do anything exciting over the Holiday? We had a big Sports Meet down here and the Air Force really trimmed the Navy and Army a lot of the boys went downtown but I didn’t bother. I saw in the paper yesterday that Betty Grable was expecting, they have only been married 7 weeks so that really is fast work or something.
Well darling I think that is about all for now and dear I love you with all my heart and so chin up and all my love.
You loving (and handsome and lonesome) husband,
Well here it is 10 minutes to 12 and I have just finished reading your letter darling and I am answering it right away so you see I don’t lose any time.
As usual dear things are pretty well the same as when I last wrote you. I worked on our canteen last night and even though I do say so myself it is going to be as nice as the Royal York when we are through. It is even nicer than those lounges that we saw when you were down here darling.
Thursday night I went to the station show and saw some second rate pictures that were not too hot and went on Wednesday night also and saw some other “B” class pictures so you see things really have been quiet.
Well Jack has got himself a…pardon me…a girlfriend. I have not seem him at night for a week so I guess he must be doing alright, if you know Jack.
I received a very nice letter from my Mother with all the news from the street so I will answer it tomorrow. I don’t know what I will do tomorrow but I guess I will go to the Capital and see “Stormy Weather” it seems to be a fair picture and since it is free i really can’t lose.
They are playing Stardust on the radio right now dear and they have just finished playing “Moonglow” and Deep Purple and a lot of those old favourites and they certainly bring back a lot of wonderful memories do you remember the dance at Danforth Tech that we went to dear and they played Deep Purple, it seems so long ago doesn’t it darling, oh well it won’t be long until we are in our own little place and catching up on all the loving that we missed and I think that is an awful lot. It really will be wonderful being all by ourselves and not having to worry about being separated agin and nothing more than the family (3) to worry about.
I’m getting behind on my washing and darning so since I have to stay on the station next week I will try and catch up on it. I hope by this time next year I will be buying myself a nice little brown suit. I don’t think I will want to wear anything blue for 10 years, I’ve seen so much of it in the last 2 years.
I’m glad that you are feeling pretty well dear but you wouldn’t tell me if you weren’t anyway dear, so please take care of yourself and get lots of rest and milk and don’t overstrain yourself. My aren’t I an awful bossy husband to be telling you what to do all the time but you know that I love you so very much that is anything happened to you I don’t know what I would do.
I think that you should go to the doctor at the end of the month dear just to be on the safe side and anyway that would be almost 3 months but it whatever you and your Mother think is best. How is your appetite dear, are you eating for 2 yet?
I want to thank you dear for going to see my Mother and Pop so often you know how much they like it when you go up to see them. I am glad to hear that Marg is having such a nice time in Newfoundland. has she got a job there yet or is she still trying? I am sure that she is enjoying her freedom as such as you did when you were down here and that she no longer has to answer to the Simpsons.
We are certainly lucky that we will see each other once in a while dear whereas Dorris and thousands of other couples won’t see each other until the war is over and we had 6 and a half months together that is something that I will never forget dear, it really was wonderful even though we had our little troubles.
Well darling I guess that is about all for now and so until Monday dear from the bottom of my heart all my love.
From your loving husband,
Well here it is Wednesday afternoon and as things are rather quiet I thought I would catch up on my mail by writing my very best gal first. I received your very nice letter and as usual I was very glad to receive it darling.
So you have had a good day on Saturday? I guess it would bother you dear standing up all the time like that, oh well darling but I am glad to hear that you are no longer sick in the mornings anyway, by the way have you had all the signs by now darling?
Well I haven’t done such an awful lot since I last wrote you. Saturday night they had the station dance and I had just 2 dances and went back to bed all by myself of course. I can’t seem to get any kick out of dancing with anybody but you darling and boy I would give anything to be able to go out with you again. Oh well dear we will have lots of chances to do that after the war is over.
We’ll put the children to bed over at Granny Lewis’ or Granny Booths’ and then skip out to the Palais Royale, that sounds like a lot of fun, don’t you think so dear?
Just thinking about having a family seems to bring you so close to me darling, especially when I think of it as “ours” and that is exactly what it is. Don’t you feel the same way about it? Love really is a wonderful thing when it is between a man and his wife, it really gives you a deep feeling of satisfaction when you know somebody is thinking about you and loving you and dear, I think about you and love you very much.
The way the war is shaping up I think that another year really ought to see it wound up. I hope so anyway dear because I’m looking forward to settling down to a respectable married life (ahem) more than anything else in this whole world.
Oh I was saying, Sunday Jack and I and another fellow went to the Dingle and had a rather quiet but nice afternoon and I went out to the spot where we had out place dear. I guess I’m just too sentimental. Sunday night they had a show on at the station and I went to it. Sunday we had 2 big steaks that hung over the side of the plate they were the best I’ve had in 2 years. Well anyway Monday night I went to the station show again and after that played a couple of games of billiards, it was a real dandy game and I have a lot of fun playing. Yesterday afternoon they marched us all down to the Forum and we saw the Army Show an it was really good. Then last night I went to the station show again and saw “Buy me That Town” and it was fair. I have not been to a show downtown since I came back and I guess I won’t be going anywhere next week as I am on duty watch all week and I won’t be leaving the station.
I’ve had about 7 or 8 different people ask me if you were coming back, my you were really a popular girl when you were down here. I am glad that you are not dancing dear, I don’t want you to take any chances either dear because I’m just as happy as you are about the whole thing and I wouldn’t want anything to happen. I’m glad to hear that your Mother is treating you so well dear. I knew she would anyway.
You didn’t say anything about your job. Are you still liking it? Well dear I guess that its about all for now but I’ll write you again on Friday or Saturday and so dear until then all my love and hoping to see you very soon.
your loving husband,
Hello my Darling;
Well here I am again and it is Sunday evening and seeing as I have a lot to tell you I have decided that my supper can wait and I am going to tell every little morsel of news that I can while it is still fresh.
Bill darling, I want you to know that if you want to leave the station and go to dances and have a little fun while you are down here that you go right ahead and do so and do not worry about me. I know that we are apart and nothing I can do at this time is going to change that so darling, please have a little fun to make the time pass by more quickly for you as I cannot stand to think of you sitting alone on your bunk writing notes to me and your Mother and Father while all the other fellows are out enjoying themselves knowing that this war is hanging over everyones head. Now that is out of the way I can continue telling you all the happenings here.
I finally took my Mother into the kitchen and told her the good news about us. She was just thrilled at the prospect of becoming a grandmother even though she is still in shock that she is a mother to a 1.5 year old. I did not even think of the idea that once our little bundle comes along that it’s aunt will only be 2 years older than them. I think that they will be more like siblings than anything else, but as you say dear, one day at a time. Mother has been taking good care of me and making me drink ,lots of milk and she said that if I wanted she would come with me to the doctors appointments, but I told her that it was to be a secret for now and that she is not to tell anyone, but I am sure that the secret will only be held for a short time.
I did notice that in your last note that you said your friend Campbell named his daughter Donna and I think that would be a lovely name if we had a daughter. I am thinking that James or John would be nice if it was a boy but I will leave that to you to tell me if you like those names or not.
Last night Irene and Jessie and I went to the show at the Imperial and saw a double feature and both the pictures were ok but nothing too exciting. After the shows we walked along the Danforth and Bill darling there were lots of men in uniform this time. I am not sure what was happening but this was the first time that I saw so many men in uniform and everyone one of them had a gal on their arm. I think we woman like to have our men in uniforms, but you know that darling don’t you. We got home just before 11:30PM not bad eh for a married wife in Toronto.
Friday we were out side sitting on the porch when guess who walked down the street, Mr and Mrs Simpson. We all waved but they just walked by us as if they had not seen us, which I know that they did. I am not sure why they would not stop and say hello, and give us some updates on how Marg is doing with Ted down there. I am just glad that Marg will be sending us her our own mail that way we will not have to worry about having to speak and ask questions of the Simpsons.
You also mentioned that you have a new job dear and that you are working with a lawyer. Wouldn’t that be swell darling if you decided to go into that profession after this war is over but I am not sure what the cost of something like that would be and how long would you have to go to school? I will leave that all up to you dear to figure out but I am guessing we will have lots of time to talk this over.
Work has been great and I have been standing quite a bit and my feet are sore, but I guess I forgot how that feels as I have not been working for about 8 months now. Bill darling, there has been no need for me to be dancing so you need not worry so much about me. All things will work out and as they say, god has a plan and I think this time the plan will work itself out for the better for the both of us dear.
I guess that is all the news form Toronto dear but I will make sure that I write you as you mentioned that you look forward in getting my letters and I certainly look forward to receiving yours as well dear so until then loving you from the bottom of my heart and thinking of you always,
From your ever loving wife,
Well here it is Saturday afternoon dear and I am lying on my bunk and trying to write. I just received your letter and I also thought your pictures were great, except that they made me realize just how much I am missing you dear and that is quite a lot.
Boy you certainly do look pretty swell in those pictures especially those ones in the bathing suit, they turned out pretty dandy dear.
I forgot to mention that I did receive the Daily Star OK dear, in fact I’ve just finished reading it and I just noticed that Ray Scotte is missing. I think you knew him didn’t you dear, he was that tall blond fellow I used to go to school with him.
Well dear I have not done an awful lot since I last wrote you dear. I have not been off the station for 2 weeks now. I’ve been going to the station show every night and they have been getting some dandy pictures. Last night I was “Torpedo Boat” and on Thursday I saw “Manilla Calling” with Lloyd Nolan, they were both good pictures.
I’ve just jumped down from the bunk dear because I wasn’t progressing very well writing on it.
I have not seen Jack Dowds around for 2 or 3 days in fact I’ve only been to the show with him since he arrived. I’m glad that you got yourself a job dear since that is that you wanted one. As far as I was concerned dear you know that it was entirely up to you whether you wanted one or not. But I really want you to take it easy dear you will do that won’t you?
Campbell has named his daughter Donna, that is a nice name isn’t it dear, have you any suggestions for ours dear?
I have a different job now dear, it is real swell and I am quite tickled about it. I can’t tell you exactly what it is but how would you like your husband to be a lawyer after the war? There is a good chance that it will lead to that anyway. I’m working with the legal officer down here and will be serving on court matters with him making investigations into illegal activities down here in the Air Force. He was saying that if I like it particularly there might be a chance that the experience gained would be taken into consideration if I were to study law.
My but Beverly certainly is growing up. I won’t know her when I get home.
As I told you before dear I miss you very much and I don’t know if I will be able to go 4 months without seeing you dear, but I guess there is nothing that we can do darling.
I think that you should get yourself a real nice coat dear you really do deserve it. You have not bought yourself anything all summer and it is about time that you did buy something for yourself. How are you settled financially dear, have you enough money?
That is nice of my Aunt to give you that necklace dear. I think that you are right in there with her. I wrote her a letter on Wednesday so I guess that she will have received it by now
Well darling I guess that is about all for now, but dear I just want to say that I love you from the bottom of my heart and that I’ll really show you someday dear just how much you do mean to me. I think you know that you mean to me more than anything else. I guess you know too dear that the way we get along and learned to depend on each other so much just how much we really need each other and darling I need you so very much.
So for now darling, all my love,
P.S – can you get those pictures of you in that bathing suit enlarged?
Well my dearest here it is Wednesday night and I have just come in from my job and I decided that I would sit right down and write you a letter and let you know how things are going here.
It is just a bout 7PM and we are going to have supper soon and boy, and I starved. I think I am eating like a horse and I think you know why. I am still not telling people yet about the happy news and yes dear, I have made an appointment to go and see the doctor to make sure eveything is OK.
Mother and Pop are doing grand darling and so is Beverly and is she ever getting big. Besides her putting on weight she is now babbling up a storm I sometimes think that she will never be quite. Mom and Pop are going out to to the lodge after supper and I will be the one left on charge of looking after her, I guess I will consider it practice for when our little one comes along. Do you think that the time will go by fast dear, or will it go slow as I am waiting for something that will be very important to both of us.
I got a phone call form your Mother asking to to come by last night, so after work I went straight there to see your parent and to my surprise, Aunt Agnes was there as well. We had a nice chat in the front room and that is when she presented me with a present. I unwrapped it and it was one of Aunt Mattie’s necklaces that she used to wear on special occasions. I was so happy to get it I think I might have even started to cry. Your Mom and Aunt were both smiling from ear to ear and then your Pop said, OK, when is the tea ready. I guess he did not see the importance of getting such a gift but I certainly do, and intend to hold on to it until you come home and you can take me out somewhere special and then I can wear it and show it off.
As I told you I decided to go back to work and it was fairly easy to get my old job back. I guess the time that I spent in Eaton’s down there in Halifax must have made an impression as I walked into the hiring office and within 1 hour I had done all the paperwork and I had my old job back in the shipping department. So Monday was my first day and boy oh boy nothing much has changed there. There are the same fellows who were there when I left back in December and darling, I am not sure why some of them have not enlisted in either the Air Force or the Army? Maybe it is because they are not married and need to work or maybe they are happy to work in a department store or maybe they are afraid to join up. Either way they are great fun and some of the fellows actually try on some of the clothes that we are shipping and they dance around and we have a grand laugh at it all.
Darling have you spent any time with Jack Dowds lately? I know he is down there and he is getting ready to be shipped out and I was wondering how he was doing.
I made sure that the Daily Star would be sent down to you over the weekend and I am wanted to make sure that you are now getting it. I am sure that the news in the paper will be a couple of days old buy the time that you get it, but regardless dear I am sure that you will enjoy reading up on Old Toronto and all the happenings.
I am thinking that I might hold off on buying anything new until the news is confirmed and I starting putting on weight. I am sure that some of my older clothes will fit me and I will need some new work clothes and maybe a new coat for winter. But maybe I will ask for that for my Christmas present, boy dear I am thinking about Christmas already and it is still the summer, and what a summer we have had here dear. Is it still warm down there?
Well my darling, I am being called for supper and Beverley is crying and I will have to gulp down my food as I will then need to feed and change her and make sure she is put to bed before I can get a minute of peace. So I will leave you with loving you more and more each day as my excitement grows (along with my waistline),
With my my love,
P.S – did you like the pictures I sent down to you?
Well here it is Monday noon dear and as I am not particularly busy I am going to write you a nice long letter (I hope).
I wrote you a letter on Friday but I did not send it air-mail as the fellow at the Post Office said that it would get there just as soon as air mail.
Well it is afternoon now dear and I’ve just had a very nice nap and dinner and I’m all set for my afternoon work??? I’ve just received your package of chocolate bars and your letter and also my Mother’s package and I want to thank you very much dear. They are certainly swell and as I’ll be writing my Mother I will thank her for the package.
I haven’t done very much since I wrote you Friday dear. I went to the station show Friday night and as I had a 48 hour leave on the weekend I slept in on Saturday and generally lazed around for the morning. In the afternoon I went out to the summer camp for a swim and arrived back about 6PM. I then went to the Forum and believe it or not I only had one dance and then I left and came back and went to the station show. I really don’t know what the trouble is except that I love you too much I guess and boy do I ever miss you an awful lot.
Sunday morning I got up and went to Church, it was a wonderful service and I enjoyed myself very much. Sunday afternoon I didn’t do very much at all. I bowled a couple of games and then slept a bit and then on Sunday night I went to the show.
There is another show tonight, it is “The Invisible Man Returns” and it should be ok. That is about all I’m doing now is going to the show with all my free time after work.
I was going to take Jack out to the Casino yesterday but he was a little later getting through dinner so we didn’t bother. He seems to like it down here and as yet had not got himself a girlfriend. I’m getting the same opinion of him that you have dear, that he will never settle down and likes to sow his wild oats.
I’m very sorry to hear that you are not able to get around to my parents house dear, but that is ok. I wish that there was something that I could do for you dear if you are feeling so tired, but I guess that will last only for a few months. Now don’t spare any expense dear if you want something to make you feel better you truly do deserve anything you wish. But he way dear, what happened to those pictures that you promised to send down to me dear? Have you got them developed yet?
I guess that was quite the affair that they had at Riverdale park. I wish I could have gone to that summer picnic, but once this war is over I think I will become a regular home body just staying home with you and hopefully our little girl. It certainly will be nice to plan our place and everything that goes in it. I hope that comes true for us very soon darling. According to the papers there seems to be a scarcity of baby wool so I guess you will have to stock up on anything you can get your hands on.
Well darling I’m afraid that is about all for now except to say that I love you vert very much and miss you more than you know.
So for now dear, all my love,
Well dear, I received your very welcome letter dear yesterday. I’m glad that you write so regularly because I look forward to receiving you letters more than anything else.
I’m very glad to hear that you are feeling well and drinking lots of milk and getting plenty of good food, something I am sorry to say that you dod not get much of down here.
Well I met Jack Dowds last night, he is expecting to be posted within he Command somewhere. He doesn’t look very good, but I guess that it was the train trip down here that made him look kind of rough, as well as a big weekend in Toronto and I guess that is the real reason. However he is rather glad to be getting around a bit. You don’t have to worry about me cutting loose with him dear. I’ve had plenty of chances of getting around dear but I’m not the least bit interested in anything or anybody except you darling and you know that I hope.
Well I have not done very much since I last wrote you darling. I went to the show Wednesday night and saw some picture that was fair and last night Thursday I saw Lucky Jordan and it wasn’t bad at all. Tonight “Road to Zanzibar” is showing and so I guess that Jack and I will take it in. Tomorrow and Sunday I have a 48 hour leave but I think that I will just sleep in tomorrow morning. They are having the dance tomorrow night but I think I will go to the Casino and see a show and Sunday I guess I will how Jack around town.
I read an article in the paper where it said that landlords could evict tenants after 6 months so maybe there is hope for your Mother yet. I would tell her to look into it at any rate and see what the score is. I’m very glad to hear that you are taking things a little easier darling and I hope that you are particularly careful at you job dear so make sure you don’t do anything strenuous at all.
Well it is almost a month since I’ve been here and I miss you something awful dear there is one thing that makes it bearable and that is what is on the way. If you just knew how happy I am about it darling and even though you are not here I’m glad that you will getting the proper care and food, something that you wouldn’t have received down here.
By the way you have not said very much about Marg, is she settled up there yet? and how does she like it, but Marg I imagine would like it anyway and make the best of it, now that she is out from under the Simpson’s roof. I hope that you had a real nice vacation dear and I am sure that it did a world of good for your spirits. We will have some wonderful times as well on vacation once this war is over, and we will go up to our very own cottage in Haultain for 3 months and that is exactly what I am planning to do. It really will be wonderful won’t it?
Well darling I guess that is about all for now except that I love you very much and give my best wishes to Mom and Pop Booth and Beverly, and so for now dear,
