June 27th, 1944

Hello Darling;

Well here it is Tuesday afternoon and I have been waiting for a letter from you since last Thursday dear. I hope nothing is wrong darling so if not why not write your very lonely husband a letter and let me know how everything is.
Well I’ve got my leave all lined up for next week. I will be in on Saturday as I am going to save my “48” until later on in the month. Oh darling if you only knew how much I am looking forward to being with you and being able to get some real loving because I really want a lot the way I am feeling about you right now.
Well let me see what is new now. I have not been doing very much as the weather has been very poor except for yesterday and today which are grand. I guess the temperature must be 80 degrees right now.
I have seen a couple of good pictures lately, especially one last night, “Two girls and a Sailor”, it had Henry James’ band in it and it really was OK.
Well darling I have not got any special plans for next week but I would like to go away with you by ourselves, somewhere, what do you say dear? It is just like going on our honeymoon every time I come home dear and boy, so I ever like coming home. I hope you feel the same way so let me know what you have in mind and we can get it all arranged.
And how is our little darling these days, as well as ever I hope. Gee but I am looking forward to seeing her again so very much. Is she starting to talk to you yet dear? I hope I am there when she says “Mommy or Daddy”, boy that will be a big day in my life.
Oh darling if you only knew how much I love you and the baby and how much I wish I was home for good in our own little place. I start feeling rather blue when I think of things like that but I guess this damn war will end someday. In the meantime I guess we will have to pit up with it.
So you have an extra member in your family, it certainly is generous of your Mother to take care of her and I hope that it works out alright.
Well darling I am afraid that is about all for now but I will be seeing you on Saturday dear and so until then darling I remain your very loving husband,

  1. First time I hear Grandmother babysitting! I thought this was positive. But hardly “generous” (as Dad states). More like reciprocating at last.
