4 August 1942 – Queens, New York
Well here’s your letter. I miss you already. When your train pulled out yesterday I had a funny feeling it seemed as if you were going away for good. I’m very glad it is not for good because I’m going to miss you a whole lot.
I love you so much it’s going to be hard not seeing you. I had a nice dream last night. It was about you and me. You’ll never guess what we were doing (am I kidding?).
You’ve only been gone 19 hours and I feel lousey. I hope this week goes fast. I have to neck with someone and that someone is you.
Honey, don’t be disappointed because this letter isn’t long because I really don’t know what to say except I love you more than anything in the world and I want you more than anything in the world.
Well how’s the country? Did you arrive safe? I hope so. Well I think I’ll have to close because there is really nothing much to tell you. So long honey.
xxx Lots of Love,
P.S. Miss me? I hope so because I miss you a whole lot. Jr. misses you too. L.R.
P.P.S. Tell Terry I was asking for her and her family. Tell her it’s been pretty peaceful around here since she went away. (If she gets mad tell her I’m only kidding.)
