Dearest Gee. I had a field day of field days today honey. What do you think — I got that Christmas package you sent so long ago, along with four more.

Dearest Gee. Didn’t get any letters yesterday or today, honey, but guess I shouldn’t kick after that gob I got the other day. The package is all gone now.

Sunday, February 25, 1945

Dearest Gee. I’m going to try and write you a letter but I’ve got visitors and you know how that goes. Write a line and then stop and shoot the bull for an hour.

Dearest Gee. Well, the mail slacked up today. I didn’t win anything. Yesterday I got three from Chick. He sent me a flock more jokes that were sent to him.

Dearest Gee. Sure got plenty of mail today, kid. A little more than I can answer tonight, I’m afraid, but I’m going to try like hell. I got your very fine letters of Dec. 8th, 28th, Jan. 4th, and 9th, and your swell Christmas card and letter of Dec. 9th. It was a mighty sweetContinue reading “Monday, January 29, 1945”

Dearest Gee. Well, honey, I haven’t heard from you for a couple of days now, no letters from anyone today. Maybe tomorrow, huh!

Haven’t written Coe or Claude + Mildred yet but figured they would find out right awayContinue reading “Monday, January 15 & Tuesday, January 16, 1945”
