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”

Wednesday, October 4, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got eleven letters yesterday and one from you the day before so I feel right good. Yours were four air jobbies and a v-mail of the 4, 6, 7, 11th and 12.

Dearest Gee. Santa Claus arrived early this year. I got four packages from you. Candy bars, marshmallows, and peanuts. I don’t know who had the most fun, the fellows with me, or me. They got just as excited as if they belonged to them. We sure do thank you, kid. Also got a letter fromContinue reading “Thursday, September 28, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Well, I’m back down to v-mail again. Haven’t got any more air mail stamps so it will have to be these for awhile. Didn’t get any letters yesterday but I wrote everyone that I owed one to. We got a partial pay today. I received the equivalent of twenty-nine seventy four. I’d justContinue reading “Friday, September 22, 1944”

Dearest Gee. Feel better now. Just received your Sept. 4 and Aug. 29 letters and Joannie’s swell card note and money order. Also got a nice long letter from Mom of Sept. 4. I want to write Joannie my thanks but don’t know whether I’ll have time or not tonight as it’s getting dark. It’sContinue reading “Wednesday, September 20, 1944”

Monday, September 18, 1944

Dearest Gee. Didn’t get any mail today or yesterday (so far today anyway). It sure makes it tough to write a letter. Douglass brought me my camera so now I can take the other four pictures if it stops this liquid sunshine long enough. I still haven’t received the films you sent. Hope they don’tContinue reading “Monday, September 18, 1944”
