Dearest Gee. Lords Sakes, Honey, have I ever been getting the mail! It’s been coming in too fast to answer. I’ve got fourteen letters and three packages in the last three days. Your letters accounted for seven of that number. Four nice long air mails and three v-mails. The dates of the air mails wereContinue reading “Wednesday, October 25, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Well, I had another big mail day today. Got your swell package of cookies and popcorn. Will have them for breakfast. Got two packages from the DeAtleys. One had a coffee can poured full of fudge and it came through in fine shape. Wasn’t a bit dry. The other was a coffee canContinue reading “Sunday, October 22, 1944”

Dearest Gee, Did mighty well on the letters today, my little hollyhock. Got your v-mail of Oct. 3, a v- from Sis, and Coe, and a letter from Mom and Erv. That makes twice now that Erv has written three pages. Don’t see how he does it but he did. Sure was glad to getContinue reading “Friday, October 20, 1944”

Wednesday, October 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your two morale builders today, although I think one was a morale “breaker downer.” The one with all the legs showing. What was you trying to do, kid? Whatever it was, you succeeded. The pictures were all good tho but I’m sweating out some 4F, or maybe a regular United States soldier,Continue reading “Wednesday, October 18, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I got your Sept. 18 air mail and your 20th v-mail and air mail letters today.

Dearest Gee. Got your Sept. 15 air mail yesterday. Also got a dehydrated one from Harry. I get a kick out of his letters. He was telling me his troubles about his going to law school. Well, honey, I’m sure glad you finally got your bracelet. Thought for awhile someone else might have wanted itContinue reading “Saturday, October 14, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Got four wonderful letters from you today. Your Sept. 12, 14, 15, and 17 air-mails. Also got a letter from Mom and Mildred C, and a v-mail from Florence so I really had a field day. If that’s the way the Ouija board feels about things, you’d better throw it away. I sureContinue reading “Thursday, October 12, 1944”

Tuesday, October 10, 1944

Dearest Gee. No mail yet. I’m sweating out some of those batches of cookies you say are on the way. Hope my mail is getting through to you a little better by this time. I’ve been trying to write almost every day but of course sometimes I just can’t. I got out of my helmetContinue reading “Tuesday, October 10, 1944”

Sunday, October 8, 1944

Dearest Gee. Didn’t get any letters last night so this won’t be much of a letter. Just don’t have anything I can write about. I think you had the right name for those islands. That was the name of the whole group but I’ve already told you the names of the two islands. Wish IContinue reading “Sunday, October 8, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Got your Sept. 10 air mail and your Sept 23 v-mail last night. Also got a v-mail from Coe dated Sept 20th. Your air mail was a nice long one that I sure enjoyed. Hope they have hooked that maniac running around Mattoon by now. He might take a notion to go visitingContinue reading “Saturday, October 7, 1944”
