Dearest Geraldine,

I'll be glad when I can put my in front of the salutation. You remember the song - My own, let me call you my own. Nothing I'd like better not for just a day but always. I mean that from the bottom of my heart, dearest one.

I'm going to take you up on the picnic you said we could have had in one of your letters, only I wasn't there. I'm afraid I was wrong again in my letter of the 9th when I said our likes were different, for your suggestions about a picnic in a quiet little place away from everyone would suit me perfectly. Dear when you say all you ask if for us to be to-gether you make me very happy. It will be the happiest moment of my life when I'm with you again.

You know, I won't care whether you have slacks on, your hair up in a kerchief, dirt on your face or anything else on the day I see you. It will be enough that you're you and I'm there with you. I don't know whether I'll have my car when I come up the first time or not. If I come by train & the schedules are the same, the one gets in about two o'clock in afternoon and the other about mid-nite. You'd be working for the first one and if you met the late one I'm afraid I'd keep you up too late for I won't want to let you go when I do finally get back to you. If I have my car of course, there will be no problem at all. I also wish we could meet if not away from Sarnia, at least alone. I feel just like Ann and her husband. There's no telling what I'll do when I see you - probably get a lump in my throat & not be able to speak. I mean it. If you think of anything let me know. If I came on train & could meet you somewhere alone it would be swell, even if it was only on a street corner because I'd really like to just have you there.

By the way, I'm still in the old bed. I forgot to mention how I was coming along in the last couple letters. I'm doing O.K. though honey, so please don't worry.

Did I tell you my sister plans to be married in June? The fellow is a navy man also a divorcee. When I marry it's for keeps and if I get the little gal I'm after (initials G.R.) I know I'll never regret it and will try always to keep her from regretting it. This practically amounts to a proposal honey and believe me I would do just that only I don't think it fair to you when I'm way over here. I hope you'll keep it in mind. I told my mother about us dear and I wish I could show you the letter she wrote back. She said all she wanted was to see me happy and that with you, in a little home of our own, she was sure I would be. She's always liked you, also my dad. (I guess I got my good eye for picking from him.) Before I came in the army she was always wishing you lived in Buffalo. You really made a hit with her and her son.

Well honey, I guess I'll have to sign off till to-morrow. If I've said anything you don't like, bawl me out. Take very good care of yourself precious as I always worry about you. I don't know what I'd do if anything happened to you. So now to you sweetheart, aloha. I'll love you always,

All my love,
