Dearest Gee. Haven’t had any letters now for a couple of days but guess I’d better scribble off a line anyway. Just got through with a delicious dinner. We barbecued a couple chickens (got ‘em legally too) and had mashed potatoes and corn. I ain’t a bit hungry right now, burp. Took about two hoursContinue reading “Sunday, November 12, 1944”

Thursday, November 9, 1944

Dearest Gee. Didn’t get any letters from you yesterday but I got a v from Mae, a letter from Erv and a swell can of mixed nuts from Rita and Mrs. Fleshner. Will you thank them for me — I pulled the same deal as once before — destroyed the box with the address onContinue reading “Thursday, November 9, 1944”

Wednesday, November 8, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your Oct. 1, 2 and 30th letters today and also one from Sis of the 30th. She sent me some flints too and the copy of the article in the Reader’s Digest. I had already read it but suppose you had forgotten that I get that magazine. So you got to seeContinue reading “Wednesday, November 8, 1944”

Tuesday, November 7, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I celebrated Election Day with two v-mails from you of Oct. 25th and 26th and a big package from the Gehrkes’ and the Neslers’ combined. It had everything imaginable in it. Hankys, pecans, gum, candy bars, shaving cream, toothpaste (two tubes of each) and cookies. I’m really getting quite a supplyContinue reading “Tuesday, November 7, 1944”

Monday, November 6, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your Sept. 30 air mail and Oct. 15th and one from Mom of Oct. 2. Then on top of that I got another package from you. Was a Christmas package too. It had a can of your very good divinity in it, jar of welcome coffee, peanuts, comb, stiptic [styptic] pencil, funniesContinue reading “Monday, November 6, 1944”

Saturday, November 4, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got two “dehydrated” letters yesterday. One from you and one from Coe. I’m getting all twisted up on whether you’re improving from taking these treatments or not. One letter will say you aren’t doing so good and another will say you are. Then I compare dates (if I still have the letters) andContinue reading “Saturday, November 4, 1944”

Thursday, November 2, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got “boo coo” [beaucoup] mail again today. Had to give up on the typewriter last night before I was quite ready. Didn’t get to thank you for the five rolls of film you sent Oct. 5th. Also got a Christmas box from Mom chuck full of candy bars, marshmallows and even some licoriceContinue reading “Thursday, November 2, 1944”

Wednesday, November 1, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got your Oct. 19th, and 20th letters today. Also got a nice long one from Mom dated the 20th. We’ve been pretty busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to write. I got a chance to use this typewriter so you can at least half way read this one.Continue reading “Wednesday, November 1, 1944”

Friday, October 27, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your Oct. 13 v-mail today and mighty fine Christmas package. Kinda early for Christmas but I understand the mail situation and t’were mighty sweet of you. The package had this tablet, envelopes, hot tamales (most welcome too), a toothbrush, candy bars, and newspapers. Sure thank you to honey. I got a niceContinue reading “Friday, October 27, 1944”
