7 August 1942 – Queens, New York
I received your card & letter. If I didn’t get a letter from you I was going to spank you good and proper. Well how’s my little angel. I miss you so much. I wish I was out there or you were home. If you go out in the boat again don’t fall overboard. Jimmy, his mother and myself went crabbing Wed. and we only got 5 crabs from 9 to 7:30.
Eddie, Moe & I are going fishing tomorrow. Enough of that now. Every night before I go to sleep I think about you and practically go nuts. I really miss you and I want some of your lovin’. I want you to know I love you so much I keep wishing you were mine, all mine. Honey, tell me you love mell [sic], please. I know you do but please write it anyhow. Well sweetheart, I can’t write anymore now its time to eat. I’ll tell you how much I love you when you’re home.
Love from the bottom of my heart,
P.S. I adore you. L.R.
