Friday, October 8, 1943

Dearest Gee. Well, kid, I really rated today. In this morning’s mail-call I got three packages, and a letter from you. Sis sent me a box of fudge and some candy bars (Hershey’s), and Claude + Mildred sent me some of those big Hershey’s, and Es + Harry sent some candy and a whole lotContinue reading “Friday, October 8, 1943”

Thursday, October 7, 1943

Dearest Gee. Thought I’d better start using some of this airmail stationary for a change. Got quite a bit on hand now. Finally got the other package of airmail envelopes and v-mail yesterday, that you sent. Got a whole raft of back mail again too, today. Didn’t you say you’d sent me some airmail stampsContinue reading “Thursday, October 7, 1943”

Wednesday, October 6, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Sunday letter yesterday but went to town with Close last night so didn’t write any. Also got an A.P.O. one from Mom dated August 21 and a letter from Sis. She wrote 4 pages type written which is a record for her, I believe. Am writing this at noon so IContinue reading “Wednesday, October 6, 1943”

Monday, October 4, 1943

Dearest Gee. What do you think of my new stationary. Bought it last night, also, lighter flints, fluid, and a new toothbrush. Having had the same one since I’ve been in, I thought it about time. Reckon we ain’t going so soon after all. Must have been a sudden change in plans. Now we areContinue reading “Monday, October 4, 1943”

Sunday, October 3, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Thursday and Friday letters today. Sounds like you are up to your neck in work too. The rat race has officially started now. Will probably be leaving sometime this coming week. We had our week-end passes cut down to overnight yesterday. Had to arise this a.m. at seven and go toContinue reading “Sunday, October 3, 1943”

Friday, October 1, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Wednesday letter this morn. Also got a letter from Coe with gum in it. Did you plan on sending me the snapshots to see? In Sis’s letter she sounded like somebody already had sent them. She wanted to know if I didn’t think they were good. Business is sure picking upContinue reading “Friday, October 1, 1943”

Thursday, September 30, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your Monday letter and Tuesday letter today. After I sent that one letter with the ribbon in it I wondered if it would go allright. Did you have to pay any extra on it? Was more like a package. Had a very enjoyable evening last night except I lost considerable sleep. DouglassContinue reading “Thursday, September 30, 1943”

Tuesday, September 28, 1943

Dearest Gee. Guess we are both in the same boat on our writing as I slipped up last night. Had one all started and Doug came barging in and wanted me to go to town. Think I told you that Doug’s wife brought his car up last week end. He has it parked outside theContinue reading “Tuesday, September 28, 1943”

Sunday, September 26, 1943

Dearest Gee. Well, Close and I went to town again last night. Close took some clothes in to be cleaned and pressed and then I went over and got your letters at the Van Ness. There was one from your mother (I didn’t read it but I had to open the envelope to get itContinue reading “Sunday, September 26, 1943”

Saturday, September 25, 1943

Dearest Gee. Got your welcome Wednesday letter today. Also got one from Mom. Glad you didn’t waste any time in writing. I plumb forgot to go to the Van Ness to see about that mail but I’ll see tonight. I imagine they returned it by now tho. I still haven’t got much to write about.Continue reading “Saturday, September 25, 1943”
