Hello Darling;

Well dear I have just finished reading your last letter and was very glad to receive it. It is just 1 o’clock on Sunday afternoon and I am writing this while I am sitting on my bunk, so please excuse the writing dear.
I didn’t want to say anything to you about our move until we knew definitely where and when we were going and even though we don’t get our leave at Christmas or New Years they say we will get it in January. They say in the paper that it will more than likely be Moncton, but I have an idea that it might be a little farther west so keep you fingers crossed darling.
I went shopping yesterday dear with 4 or 5 of the boys and I bought exactly nothing so it wasn’t a very profitable afternoon was it? You can renew my subscription for the Star dear, for a month anyway, and even if we move they will forward it on to me.
I am glad to hear that you are feeling so well dear, the fellow I was working with, his wife is expecting a baby on the 16th of January or so and she only weighs about 103 lbs. or so and she isn’t as big as you. So I am really proud of you dear and I can’t wait until I get home with you.
I bet you look pretty luxurious in that new night gown darling, boy when I just think of it (naughty naughty) and I love you so very much I don’t think you will be safe when I am home, but then who wants to be safe eh dear? I know I don’t.
I went to the show Wednesday night and saw Paulette Goddard in something or other. Thursday night I went up to our club and played cards with the boys all night. Friday night I saw “Crystal Ball” with Paulette Goddard again. Last night I was asked to work in the canteen so I had a very quiet evening. I had to keep an eye on the boys and to make sure that they behaved themselves.
I went to church this morning and as I do not feel like going downtown to the show tonight, I am going to be the one at the station. Lloyd Waters got out of the hospital yesterday and he feels fine.
I really don’t know what you could get my folks. I think that a shirt and tie would be just the thing, you could see Roy Duffat at Eaton’s to pick it out for you as he knows what he would like and I think he knows you doesn’t he dear? Excuse me dear but the radio is just playing some Scotch songs and one of the boys just mentioned that Scotch girls are the hottest women of them all. I didn’t say anything but boy I really agree with him!
Well let me see, would a nice sweater be OK for my Mom or a make up kit and a pair of gloves. I’ll leave it up to you dear.
Well dear I’m afraid that is about all for now but I’ll write you as soon as I receive your next letter and as soon as I hear anything more I’ll let you know as soon as possible dear, and so now as ever,
Your very loving husband,
