Dearest Geraldine,



Here I am again hon. I probably won't get far for the next half hour because Jack Benny's program has just come on the radio. It will be nice when I can spend evenings such as this one, with you. I'd like to be walking along a shaded path or by the lake now. Evening is a beautiful time out in the country, everything becomes hushed as the light changes to dusk, then to darkness. Remember how it was in Muskoka. I think we'll have to go there for our honeymoon, if it pleases you little one. That is an ideal place for such a special occasion - don't you agree? We'll have lots of time to talk this over, I know, but I like to talk about it now.



I've had a little interruption hon, a couple of fellows from the train came in to see me and brought a whole pie. We'll knock it off after lights out. The cooking on the train was the closest to home cooking I've had in the army.



Next day - After lights out last nite, five of us finished off the pie. It [was] apple and very delicious. We ate it while listening to Guy Lombardo. He played one of my favourite tunes 'Let's Take the Long Way Home.'



It's a damp, chilly day here today. The nurse is going to wash my mop of hair this afternoon so I'll have to see that I don't get a cold and have extra time added onto my stay here. It really needs a good washing and I expect it will feel and look much better after.



Here's something for you to think about little one. Which do you prefer, a gold or silver ring? You should pretty well know what you want after seeing so many on your friends.



Apparently this is going to be a short letter as the nurse is getting ready to go to work on me so I'll sign off now, hoping you are well. Don't work too hard!



All my love,

Always,

Your

Johnny
