Hello darling;

Well dear I have just come in from having supper and I thought I would write my wife a nice long letter. I received your letter Friday and as I did not have very much news to tell you then I thought I would wait until today but I have not got very much to tell.
First darling I am glad that you are feeling better and that darn cold of yours has finally left you. I was getting very concerned that you were not taking good care of yourself and you did not go and see the doctor. But I am very happy to hear that you are on the mend and that you are happy.
I went to the hospital on Wednesday to visit Pere but he had been let out on Tuesday so I guess he must be ok now and not having too many difficulties from the accident.
I don’t know if you knew Paul Picard I think you met him once when you were down here. Anyways he was not feeling very well about 2 weeks ago and so he went into the hospital anyway, he died last night. I don’t know that the trouble was but he certainly went fast so as I knew him pretty well I might be asked to be an escort for his funeral.
Well I am going to go to the show as soon as I finish your letter dear. The picture is “Holiday Inn” and as I have not seen it yet I am rather looking forward to it. I went to church this morning and it was a really good service. We have been having real nice wether lately. It has been a little cold but every day has been bright and sunny.
Last Tuesday night I went to the station show and saw “Star of Russia”, I think that was the name. Wednesday night I stayed in as I had a touch of the flu, do I have you to blame for this dear? Wednesday night I saw “Cross of Lorraine” with Gene Kelly. I guess they are not showing these pictures in Toronto yet, it was a very good, but bloodthirsty picture.
Lloyd left on Friday for his weeks leave and I gave him a few pointers on how to get himself to become a father. I hope it all works out for him.
Gee dear I guess we really have a lot of clothes for our baby now, and only 6 more weeks to go. I can hardly wait for next month to come around so I can pass out all the cigars to the lads.
Well darling what is the news about you house, are you moving in next week and take it easy dear, don’t do any house work. I think you should spend the first night at our house dear. It will be real handy where you will end up as it will be real close to everybody and you can visit everyone with our baby. Marg and you can go out together and who knows I might be able to go out with my wife and little baby finally.
Well darling that is about all for now but I will drop you another few lines on Tuesday or Wednesday and so dear until then , from he bottom of my heart,
All my love, your very loving husband,
