Hello darling;

Well dear I received your very nice letter today and also the cheque. I was very glad to hear that our little daughter is getting along so well. I guess I will notice a big change in her when I get home, which won’t be too soon.
Oh by the way dear you won’t have another letter from me until I get home as I am going on a trip for the rest of the week. I imagine that I will be home on Friday night however, so tell my Dad to be at the station at the usual time.
I bought our bond dear and you will be able to pick it up at the bank when they notify you. Our little baby must really be cute now. I can’t wait until I get her out in her carriage. The weather is certainly grand down here and I just hope it is as nice down home on the weekend. i just hope that nothing turns up to stop me from getting down but I will let you know if I can’t make it this weekend.
Well let me see what I have been doing since I last wrote you. Thursday night I went to the station show. Friday night they had a dance on at the station but it wasn’t very good. Saturday night I went to the station show and on Sunday I went to Church in the morning and went for a walk in the afternoon and finished up in the Hospitality House for the evening where I spent the evening reading and listening to records.
Well let get back on more interesting subjects, particularly our daughter. I am glad to hear that she is taking to her food and are you deciding to give her more food than the doctors recommended. I guess you will know when she cries that she is hungry or needing changing. Have you had her to the doctors yet and what about yourself, do you feel like a big weekend or would you rather have us stay in? Have I ever got a couple of cute pictures to show you. I think they are really good and I cut them out of a magazine I was reading.
I am glad to hear that our little daughter is getting lots of visitors, and it is wonderful that you are spending so much time with Marg again, now that she is allowed out of that house. I am sure that you will be able to give her lots of tips and pointers on how to be a mother and I think that will be good for her to learn seeing as she is all by herself and I am sure that Mrs Simpson will not take the time to teach her how to do all those motherly things.
Well dear I think that is about all for now but if it is possible I will try and drop you another line, so for now dear all my love to you and little Donna.
Your loving husband,
