Letters from Larry – 21 October 1941

21 October 1941 – Queens, New York

Dearest Marion,

I’m am very sorry I didn’t see you last night. I  got home pretty late and being you said you’d probably be undressed I didn’t call for you.  Yesterday afternoon about ten after three I was going to call Lou’s and tell him to call you to the phone so I could talk to you.  But I couldn’t get down to the cafeteria to make the call.

I am beginning to miss you more and more each day. But when I come home and see you, even for only a few minutes, it’s wonderful.  I often wonder if you miss me as much as I miss you and wonder to whether or not the times we see each other are just as wonderful as they seem to me.  Fellows down the place talk about their girlfriends but none of them seem like you.  Your different, your my little angel.

Honey I love you more than words can express.  There’s a song called “The Words Are In My Heart” which would help explain the situation.  I really mean that.  I love you more than anything else.  The bug has bitten me harder than ever.  I hope the same one bit you just as hard.  Well dear I think I’ll close now its late.  Please forgive this obnoxious writing. Think of me angel, I think of you “All thru the day and o’er the night.” (“This Love of Mine.”)

I remain yours with loads of love and kisses,

Larry

P.S. Please, please do not show this to anybody, including your sister.  Its for you and you alone.  I’ll see you tomorrow night at 7:30 for Confraternity.

Love again and always,

Larry

Note: The Words Are in My Heart, recorded by Dick Powell in 1935 for the movie Gold Diggers of 1935, starring Dick Powell and Gloria Stuart.

In my song of love
The moon above makes the music.
The words are in my heart.
My lips may be afraid
To serenade you tonight but
The words are in my heart.

Roses red in rhythm are swaying,
And like my heart, they’re tenderly saying:
My dear, I love you so
And even though I can’t say it
The words are in my heart.

This Love of Mine by Frank Sinatra, recorded in 1941 with Tommy Dorsey.

This love of mine goes on and on
Though life is empty since you have gone
You’re always on my mind, though out of sight
It’s lonesome through the day
But oh, the night
I cry my heart out, it’s bound to break
Since nothing matters, let it break
I ask the sun and the moon
The stars that shine
What’s to become of it
This love of mine
I ask the sun and the moon
The stars that shine
What’s to become of it
This love of mine
This love of mine goes on and on
