Hello darling;

Well here it is a very warm Wednesday afternoon and I thought I would write you a letter and let you know how everything is going.
First I want to say hat I had a really swell time on my “48” hour leave dear, as I always do and I can’t get over how cute our little girl is getting. She certainly is coming along just fine.
Well dear let me see what I have done since I came back. Monday night I worked all night Last night I went swimming and tonight I think I will see “Cobra Women” at the station show.
I wrote Mrs Dean on Monday dear so I should hear from her pretty soon and I’ll let you know if I can get up there. I just wish that you could come dear, don’t you think you could make it dear? I know your mother would look after the baby for us if we asked nicely and it would be OK? You could even bring the baby up with you if she said no. You took her up to Lake Simcoe and that is almost as long a trip but I will not tell you one way or another. I will leave it up to you entirely dear.
I guess Toots is really feeling the weather these days. I feel sorry for our little tyke, she is such a lovable little thing. I think I will be able to afford about 4 of them, what do you say dear, it sure will be fun trying.
They let us wear civilian clothes when we go swimming, so I had my outfit on last night and I felt like a new man.
I was at the dentist today dear, that reminds me I wish you would get your fixed up while we have a little extra money to spare because when we start buying our new home we won’t have as much so won’t you go dear and see about them?
We were just told that work ceases at 4 PM today, it certainly is a tough war isn’t it dear? I am just glad that I can do my part here in Canada and that I do not have to go overseas like some of the other lads. If that was to happen I do not know what I would do if I could not see our little daughter.
Well dear I guess that is about all for now but I will write you at the end of the week again and so until then I remain you very loving husband,
Bill

P.S – she certainly is a cute little daughter isn’t she?
