Well how is the patient today, very well I hope. I rather expected a letter from you today dear especially after my Mother told that you had written on Sunday and am I ever anxious to see our little daughter dear. I can’t do anything else but think about her, it is sure going to be tough coming back here the next time.
Well how are you feeling darling? Well I hope. My Mother says that you look wonderful. I just hope hat you will be able to come out when I come home. You should be out around Saturday.
I have not done hardly anything since I last wrote you expect go around in a daze. I have still that that darn cold of mine and it has been lingering around for some time. Saturday I did not do anything at all. Sunday it was such a swell day and I went for a walk with the rest of the boys and was in bed by 10PM. Last night they had a concert on at the station and I went, it was pretty good. Tonight there is a show it is “The Imposter”, it is real new and it might be OK.
Well how do you like hospital life dear? I hope they are taking good care of you and have you got your radio there? It should help make the days go by faster. Gee darling, do I ever wish I could visit you every day. I guess I’ll just have to finish this war up right away so I can get home to my darling wife and baby daughter.
By the way dear who does she look like, but I guess you have given me all the details in that letter you wrote. I certainly hope that it comes in tomorrow because I really was disappointed when I did not get it today.
I will be in Friday night dear but I won’t be seeing you until Saturday I guess. How does Pop and Mom Booth feel about it? My Dad bought $5.00 worth of cigars for the boys in his office. I guess he is just like a kid again.
Boy am I ever happy dear, with a beautiful wife whom I love very much and a beautiful daughter who I will also love very much, what more could I want except I want to be with you and her right away. I will just have to put my trust in the Lord and say your prayers and I will not be long until I am back home with you both. I really think that is why we have so much love, and we really do have a lot to be thankful for and I will keep remembering that and hold that close to my heart.
Well darling I think that is about all for now dear and I will be seeing you before you would receive another letter so I won’t write again and so for now dearest give my love to our daughter and to you dear I give all my love and take is easy dear and get lots of rest.
So for now dear, all my love,
Your very loving husband, and now father,

The fact that Dad has a persistent cold might as well be fortelling! COLD atmosphere to come, perhaps?
