Dearest Gee.

Well, honey, I hit the jackpot again yesterday. Got your nice five pager of Nov. 5th and v-mail of the 6th. Also got a v- from Mae and Coe. Last but not least I got a package from Mom. Just finished writing a thank you note to Sis for a package and now I get one from Mom which calls for another letter.

Boy, you sure outdid yourself on that one letter. Was a nice one in that it contained a lot of good news too. Was sure glad to hear Mom got her pension back, also that your company had all left (what a thing to say, huh.)

Well, honey, I think it would be a swell idea to start thinking about a lot. I don’t know how the finances are at present but you should. It would probably be best if we could buy a house already built rather than a lot and then try to build one. From the way the price of lumber is now it would take a fortune to build a garage. It should be a pretty good investment anyway. We might be able to get a better deal out of Ozier, however, I don’t know about that. He’s friendly enough but when it got down to business it might be something else again.

Sorry you didn’t get to see the Champaign Urbana game. How long did they postpone it?

Guess I’ll have something else to tell Close the next time I see him. Suits, dresses, shoes, hats, and twelve dollar chairs. Wow! I thought we were poor people. Close will go sky high.

So Claudie is working in Indiana now. He sure does get around too. Even tho you don’t have the best time in the world I feel better when you’re with her than when you’re with Jenny. At least you get to see shows and plenty of parties. That Jenny, she sure floors me. Sure is a lousy trick.

Don’t think you’ll have to worry about any changes in appearance. I’m a little older, couple more wrinkles, some more grey hair, but I still love you. You would have to look pretty bad for me to turn you down.

Sounds like Chick is thinking of starting up a hamburger stand. I can guess what he wants it for. I’ve seen the time when I’d like to have had some mustard too but not so bad I’d want to lug it around.

Well, honey, I have to dash off Mom a few lines and thank her for the package so I’d better quit.

I sure love you and miss you. Hope I see you soon.

So long now.
