Hello Darling;

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,

Bill
