I miss you
Write Soon. ALL MY LOVE XOX
Yo te amo
Darling Mark –
No letter today!
I feel like writing to you anyway. I just got off K.P. a little while ago. It wasn’t so bad. Today it was cold & rained continuously – so I guess I was lucky I was inside all day.
Honey –this sure is a wonderful pen. It’s a pleasure writing with it. All I have to do now is learn how to write.
I’m still sore from riding last Sunday.
I’m going to bed early tonight – I can’t get enough sleep.
We have another training film in the theatre in the morning – I reckon that would be a chance to catch up on some.
I’m sitting here half-asleep now & dreaming of you honey. Honey you had better be careful – theres a lot of flu going around & by the sound of things the weather there is just right for it.
Well honey I’d better close now & get to sleep. I miss you honey ! ! ! !
Goodnite honey. X O X
X O X All My Love Johnny
