Dearest Gee Well, honey, you’ll be giving me back to the Indians for not writing but I sure haven’t had any time for it this week. I got a lot of nice things from you tho. I got your package of cigarettes and film. Two packages, that is, and four packages of candles. Sure doContinue reading “Thursday, March 1, 1945”

Friday, January 26, 1945

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I got three nice packages today. Got yours, Joannie’s, and one from Es and Harry. Yours wasn’t the long-awaited one but it was okay anyway. It had candy, popcorn, and two packages of tobacco in it that were sure a big help. I’ve been smoking my pipe quite a bit lately.Continue reading “Friday, January 26, 1945”

Wednesday, January 3, 1945

Dearest Gee. Happy New Year, and all that sort of stuff. This is your first letter of the new year anyway. Suppose you noticed the new address on the envelope. I’ll include it at the end of this letter too. Might as well tell the gang about it because I don’t think I’ll have timeContinue reading “Wednesday, January 3, 1945”

Monday, December 25, 1944

Dearest Gee. Merry Christmas, honey. I had a good one because I got three letters from you today and one card from Es + Harry. Yesterday I drew a package from Claude and Mildred that had candy bars galore in it, a can of soup (chicken noodle), a much needed pencil, lead, and eraser, andContinue reading “Monday, December 25, 1944”

Friday, December 15, 1944

Dearest Gee. My mail really seems to be piling in now. I hope it keeps up the good work. Yesterday I got several more letters. Your very sweet letters of Nov. 17, 20th, and the lonesome card and letter of Nov. 21. I got a three pager from Dad that really surprised me, one fromContinue reading “Friday, December 15, 1944”

Tuesday, December 12, 1944

Dearest Gee. Boy, the mail sure is coming in slow now for some reason or other. I got a v-mail from Dad of Nov. 28th and one from Carrie of the 27th but none from you, kid. Boy, day before yesterday did I ever get a swell package from Jack and Hilah! One like Bernard’s.Continue reading “Tuesday, December 12, 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”

Saturday, October 14, 1944

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”

Thursday, October 12, 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”

Friday, September 22, 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”
