Hello darling;

Well dear, I am sorry that I did not write you sooner but I have really been busy since I have been back that I haven’t had a chance. I had a very good trip back and slept quite well on the train.
I certainly had a wonderful time on my leave dear, but it was over too soon. I hope you enjoyed it too dear, and I was certainly glad to see how well our daughter was coming along.
I had to work Monday night and Tuesday night. I was so tired I went to bed early. Wednesday night I saw that picture “Gaslight” and it was very good dear, that I suggest you try and go out and see it if you get a chance.
I received your telegram dear and thank you very much dear as it was very thoughtful of you to send this along for my birthday.
I don’t know when I will be home yet, either next weekend or the one after that. It depends when I am on fire duty in the baracks. I think it will be next week so I won’t be home until the week after that. The weather down here has not been too bad but we have had a few showers since I can back.
Gosh I hope that this darn war is over before long as I certainly want to settle down with you and our baby and have a place of our own but we are lucky compared to some other people that we know.
I hope Marg is well, I guess she is out of the hospital by now and I am really glad that she pulled through all right because I think that she is a real swell kid and now you can help her along as she is a new mother just like you.
I have not been doing any swimming yet but I think I will get some in this weekend. I was just thinking as I wrote this that a week ago today we went to the show downtown, the time has certainly gone by very quickly hasn’t it dear?
I received $1 from S&U so I will write them back thanking them and letting them know I am a proud pop.
Well darling I think that is about all for now but I will drop you another letter on Sunday and so until then, I remain,
Your very loving husband,

Bill

P.S Thank your mother for me for letting me stay at your place for the week
