9 November 1942 – Newport, Rhode Island
Well sweetheart how are you? I hope your feeling well. I’ve been thinking of you constantly. And I do miss you & need you. You really were a comfort when I was feeling lousey and I feel that whenever I think of home & you. I wish I could end this rotten war. All the fellows feel that way too. I’m at a loss for words right now because I’ve been thinking about you so much I want to be near year. Honest honey I love you, I really do. Just wait till I get home. Well have a good time.
We had chicken for Sunday’s dinner and was that good. I’m getting use to the food now and its not bad at all. I gained four pounds already. I’ll be a horse soon. How’s everyone home? Well I just have 9 minutes before taps to write the envelope and drop it in the mail-box. I was busy tonight washing clothes & stuff. Well goodnight sweetheart. I’ll write a nice long Wed. night. Good again honey.
I love you always
P. S. I love you. L.
