Hello Darling;

Well here it is Sunday morning and I thought I would drop you a few lines to let you know that I am fine and thinking of you all back at home.
It is quite chilly here today but it is bright and cherry out so it is not too bad. I think I will take in a cinema this afternoon, Bing Crosby is on in “Pennies From Heaven”, it is an old timer but I would like to see it again. I did not get up to eleven o’clock this morning, that is the latest I have stayed in bed since I arrived over here, so I really think I deserved it don’t you?
I received your letter of the 19th and was glad to hear that everything is well back at home. I do not know what could have happened to that letter that I wrote to Mom and Pop but I guess you keep them informed of all that is happening. We are still very busy men over here and I am really glad because the time goes so much faster.
The war news is very good is it not? I would not be surprised if it was pretty well all over by the time you receive this letter, at least I am hoping that it is.
Gee I wish I could have been there when Donna walks for the first time. She certainly looks cute in that picture you sent over to me of her and I noticed she still likes your necklace. Well I have been over here a month yesterday and it seems to have gone fast really. But that is because everything is new. I will have to wait another 3 or 4 months and I bet you it will seem to go really slow.
How does my Aunt like it at our place? She should be comfortable there and it would be easier then keeping that other big place going all be herself.
Have you sent a parcel off yet dear? Please do not forget the razor blades because I am really getting short on them. I have had one meal in a restaurant. I had spam and chips and a cup of tea and it cost me 1/6 or about 35 cents Canadian, so you can see how expensive it is to eat out. The service institutes are a lot cheaper though.
How is you dad doing at this lodge? Well I hope.
How is Mom doing with the house, has she started to get the kitchen done over yet? I do not know what we are going to do about getting a place when I get my discharge. But I imagine we will do alright but I better not worry about that until the time comes.
Well dear I guess that is about all the space I have left here for now and so you and Donna look after yourselves and so dear loving you very much,
I remain your loving husband,

Bill
