Hello Darling:

Well dear I have just finished reading your last letter as it arrived today and was I ever glad to receive them.
I’m happy to hear that you have been feeling good during the week. I do a lot of worrying about you darling so please take real good care of yourself.
Well things have been pretty quiet as usual since I last wrote you. I haven’t been off the station and I just have been going to the station show every night. This morning they had a Church service and after that Norm and I played snooker.
This afternoon Norm, Bob, Jack and myself are going to the Capital as the picture is “DuBerry was a Lady”, they say that it is a pretty good picture so we will take it in anyway. Norm is from Belleville you know and he is engaged to a girl back home. He asked me the other day how did I like married life and darling I said that I’ve had the happiest time of my life since I have been married and that I’ve got the most happy days of them all ahead of me and darling I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
If you knew how much I am looking forward to getting home at Christmas too dear and catching up on my loving. I think that Germany might fold up in the next three months dear so you just mark my words and save this letter and if I’m wrong I’ll give you 5$. I’ve been doing a lot of reading about it and I really wouldn’t be surprised at all darling. She has been taking a lot of beatings in Russia and she want to get out before her cities are completely wrecked but we will wait and see and do a lot of praying in the meantime.
Well dear when we knock Germany off I might get a chance to get posted home or maybe out to the west coast, oh well Vancouver is a swell place they say.
Well dear it is exactly 5 hours since I wrote the top line of this letter, the fellows went to the show and it was pretty good. There is a show up at the station tonight so I guess we all will take it in. After I guess I will go up and have a butterscotch sundae after, does that sound good darling? Well dear that is something we will do a lot after this darn war is over. Boy I look forward to the three of us walking along Danforth and dropping in at Rice’s for Sundaes or do you think Little Doreen should just have a glass of milk. We will certainly have a lot to look forward to won’t we dear and I promise you darling that I won’t go outside our house unless you say it is OK and you go with me.
I forgot to mention that I met Ed Davidson this afternoon in the line up for the show. Boy do I ever wish it was the night that we last saw him do you remember dear?
Well darling I guess that is about all for now I’m afraid that I haven’t got much news for you this time dear but I just want to say that if you don’t feel very well I want you to go to the doctor dear. I think that it wouldn’t hurt to go anyway.
Well dear this won’t reach you int time for me to tell you to take it easy at the Dance Monday night but I know you won’t dance and will take good care of yourself.
Well darling that is about all for now darling but I just want to say that I love you very much and that I miss you very much and so darling for now form the bottom of my heart all my love,

Your Loving husband,



P.S – only three more months and these kisses will be real
