Wednesday, August 9, 1944

Dearest Gee. Long time no here again. Got a letter from Erv yesterday and that’s all. Maybe tonight I hope, the sack will come in. When I don’t get any letters then I haven’t anything to write about. Haven’t you received that package yet? Lawd, Lawd, wonder what’s the matter? It’s been almost two months.Continue reading “Wednesday, August 9, 1944”

Sunday, August 6, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your letter with the address book in it today. I didn’t realize how much good that thing was until I lost mine. Thanks for going to all the trouble. Not that I can ever write to all the people whose address you put in, but it’s nice to know when all theContinue reading “Sunday, August 6, 1944”

Saturday, August 5, 1944

Dearest Gee. No letter from you again last night. Received two packages of Hershey bars from Mildred, three bars to each package. Will have to write her a thank you note. Also got a nice long typewritten jobby from Sis. I like them kind I can lean back and read for half or three quartersContinue reading “Saturday, August 5, 1944”

Thursday, August 3, 1944

Dearest Gee. Haven’t heard from anyone for two days now. Maybe I’ll catch a couple tonight. Didn’t write any letters last night or night before but thought I’d better rip a piece of one off tonight. Am writing this in the afternoon as we’re having some prize fights tonight that I want to go see.Continue reading “Thursday, August 3, 1944”

Sunday, July 30, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your July 19 air mail today with the color picture of you in it. It’s pretty good but the color kinda blurs the picture, don’t you think. If that coat is any more red that that is should stop traffic. That sure is some expensive films almost as bad as over here.Continue reading “Sunday, July 30, 1944”

Friday, July 28, 1944

Dearest Gee. Got your July 16 airmail jobby today. Also got one from Erv and a v-mail from Coe. Last but not least, a nice big package from Jack and Hilah. It was full of peanut clusters, caramels, lemon drops, taffy bars and three magazines. Was sure surprised. That calls for another letter. This guyContinue reading “Friday, July 28, 1944”

Thursday, July 27, 1944

Dearest Gee. Sure got a lot of writing to do now. Got your July 8, 9, 12th, 14th, 15th, and 20th airmails. Also got a long one from Sis dated the 17th. She sent me a bunch of jokes that are really good. You’ve said so much now, I don’t know where to start. I’mContinue reading “Thursday, July 27, 1944”

Monday, July 24, 1944

Dearest Gee. Well, this is our day, kid. Seven years ago we were sure nervous, ain’t it? Now we have to make up for three anniversaries besides all the other holidays. I bought you a cameo bracelet and I’ll send it air mail if I can. It should get there in time for your birthday.Continue reading “Monday, July 24, 1944”

Friday, July 21, 1944

Dearest Gee. Received your July 10 v-mail today. That’s not bad time for v-mail. So you romped again on the shoes. I hope you at least bought some you can wear and not have to just sit and look at them. From all these good rumors floating around about Hitler about ready to give up,Continue reading “Friday, July 21, 1944”
