March 10th, 1946

Hello Darling;

Here it is Sunday morning at 11:45 and I have just finished reading the Sunday Scandal sheet but it was very respectable this morning and there was nothing spectacular to read about. But there was 33 people killed at a foot ball game yesterday when the crowd got out of control.
Well let me see what I have done. Thursday night I went tot he show and saw “Thrill of a Romance” and it was very good and streamy. Friday night I went skating at Wembley Stadium, but yesterday afternoon I really did have a swell time. I went through the Houses of Parliament and really saw everything, it was very interesting. I picked up a couple of pamphlets and post cards, but I went to Westminster Abbey after that and that was really something and extra special. There were 6 Canadians in our party and one of the ministers took us around and showed us all the historical things and places where everybody was buried, including 4 kings of England. It will always be something for this Daddy to look back on and tell his children about.
last night I just kicked around the club and played cards and billiards. Today we have not quite made up our minds what to do yet. But I am going to see as much as I can as rumours are flying around thicker and faster than they ever were. But I am not going to get your hopes up until I can wire you and tell you for sure when to expect me, but I can tell you that things are shaping up better than I thought they would by this time.
Well I think spring is just around the corner and about time too as you just cannot seems to get warm over here no matter what you do. Thank goodness that I will be able to sit in a nice warm house and take a nice warm bath once I get home.
Well dearest, how is little Toots this week? Have you been telling her that her Daddy will be seeing her again soon and as I told you before dear, she will consider me a stranger and I will have to start over with her, getting to know her and letting her trust me but I think we will be real good friends before long.
You know that I have told you over and over again in each letter that I write you that I love you more and more each day that we are apart dear, and that we will have a wonderful life together and have a long and happy marriage that I am sure of. And now that we have Donna and possibly more little ones to come along there is nothing int he world that will make me happier than to grow old with you and watch her grow up to become an amazing woman just like her Mom.
I better end things here dear as I am getting too sentimental and I just might start swimming home from jolly old England. So as always,
All my love dear,

Bill

One thought on “March 10th, 1946

  1. I have always wondered about the grammar and spelling in the letters. Have the letters been transcribed exactly as they were originally written?

    It makes them more personal with all the little “mistakes” in spelling etc!
