Hello darling;

Well dear here it is a really lovely Wednesday afternoon and I just feel like writing a real nice letter.
I got a good seat on the train dear and managed to get quite a good sleep or should I say naps. I bought a pillow and it was certainly a big help. We got in at 7:10 and so it gave me long enough to have breakfast and get shaved up and washed.
Well dear how is out little daughter? Boy I can’t get over how cute she is. I think she is a little darling. I think everybody is jealous of us. I hope she is putting on a little weight but I guess you will tell me all the details in your next letter. Let me know when you get the carriage dear.
I do not know what we would do without your mother. I don’t know how to thank her, because she is certainly doing a wonderful job considering that she has a little one of her own. I guess it is different as our baby is her grand-daughter.
Well last night I went to bed at 7PM and had a real good nights sleep and I feel fine now. There was a concert on at the station but I did not feel like going to it. Tonight there is a show and tomorrow night the dance is on and Friday night the picture “Shine on Harvest Moon” is on.
Well dear I really think we are very lucky as we have not had to pay for a thing except the hospital and Doctors bills. And darling please take things easy during the day as you do not get an awful lot of sleep during the nights.
I just received a letter from S&U and what do know I received $5 from them, boy that is OK. It says in the paper that Bert Hearaden the red headed fellow is in England.
I am just going to knock off now and have a Sundae; don’t you wish you were here?
Well darling I think that is about all for now but I will write you on Saturday or Sunday dear and I expect to have a lot more to tell you then.
And so for now darling,
All my love to you and our darling daughter,
your loving husband and Pop,

Bill
