Dearest Geraldine,

My morale is high again with the arrival of four letters from you. They were dated from April sixteenth through the nineteenth. Nothing cheers me up like a letter from my one and only, not to mention the snap of enclosed of Margaret and you sitting on the sand. You seem to get prettier all the time, but I don't see how you possibly can improve any more. For my money, you're perfect right now. Thanks very much for the snap little one! Wish I could send you more. Maybe I'll be able to when I get out of here. By the way, I'm still coming along OK and taking my ease in bed.

If this new hair style of yours is fluffed up over your forehead - well I was going to say I liked it better that way, but looking at the latest picture you sent I'm not sure. You're so darn cute in all styles that I wouldn't want to advance on opinion.

I hope you don't have any more of those bad headaches hon. For crying out loud take care of yourself dor I don't want anything happening to you, dearest girl in the world. I wish I could really tell you how much I love you, but Webster just never made any words that can describe it. Mathematically I'd say to the googolth power. In case you don't know what a googol is, it's 10 with a hundred zeros after it. In other words a figure beyond the imagination. It's none too much for a girl like you either. Doggone hon, you'll just have to wait till I'm back, then you won't need words - actions speak louder than they do you know. Just consider how much you want to be loved and then multiply by a googol - you'll have a pretty close estimate.

To-day is a little on the stormy side, one minute the sun shines, the next it's clouds. To top it all off, we've had snow flurries this morning. It's also quite chilly. There's a major in the next room and I had to laugh at him. Every nite the ward boy has to build a fire in the stove in his room and it's really been warm up until to-day. He also sleeps with the windows shut and two blankets on the bed. To pat myself on the back and show you what a 'rudgy' character I am - no fire, one blanket and wide open window. Proud of my hon?

Now sweet, please take care of yourself & remember I'll always be saving all my love for you. Thank you for your prayers hon, you are in mine too.

With all my love,




Excuse stationery.

It's all that is available.
