Hello darling;

Well here I am again dear. Here it is Friday afternoon and I have just finished opening your parcel #3 and I want to thank you very much dear. I thought though that you had put a little bottle in it, but I guess you will it in one of them in the near future (I hope).
Well it is really blowing today and is quite chilly. I have not had a letter from you since last week Monday, but none of the boys have had any mail either so I do not feel too bad.
Well let me see what I have done. Last night I went tot he show and saw “The Dougal’s” and it was pretty good. I was in bed by 10 and had a real good nights sleep, which I hope I will not have for the first month when I get home, but I will not mind one bit.
Well they are opening a night club for us here, they have taken over a big hotel right on the boardwalk, on the beach. It is really a lovely big place but there are so many darn men here that a guy has not got much of a chance unless he is a combined Robert Taylor and a Rockefeller, and anyway the women over here are built like feather beds and I guess most of them are used for that purpose. Personally, the Toronto girls have it over them for dress, looks, and everything. A lot of these girls are getting desperate as their chances of them getting a Canadian husband are getting pretty slim. Boy, a lot of our boys are going to disappointed when they start comparing the English wives with you Canadian girls.
Well darling your holidays will be almost over when you receive this. I only hope that you and Donna had a real good time and I do hope that it will be the last holiday you will have to take without me.
Ross is going on his leave tomorrow for 19 days. I am getting mine the first 9 days in August and I a meeting him in London then we will go around together for our leave.
I do not know where I will going yet, but I would like to get to Aberdeen, but I do not know definitely yet whether I am getting all those days off.
Well how is Jack Sherman doing? Cooks are key men over here so I do not know when he will be getting home, but I hope that it is soon as he has been away from home for a very long time, and he will not know his wife when he gets home. That is one thing about us darling we have known each other for so long and we know so much about each other that we will not have to get to know one another when I get home.
Well I better not start thinking too much about what will happen when I get home or else I will be in a heap of trouble. I think I will close off this letter now, as I really do not have much more news to give.
So darling, with all my love from the bottom of my heart,
Loving you always, your loving husband,

Bill
