All My Love XOXX

Darling Mark –

         Hello Sweetheart!!

I got a letter from you today – the [one] that took you two days to write.

I just came back from the show. Saw the Butler’s Sister. It was good too!

It must be cold in K.C. Its been plenty cold here today & right now its freezing out! I sure hate to see it get cold.

There’s hardly anyone left around here now – another bunch left on furlough tonite. There’s a big bunch supposed to be back tomorrow tho.

Honey – I can’t try for the Air Cadets now – you know why!

Say – babe, whats the idea of sending me that paper to read – do you really think I should read up on gambling – drinking & wimmins? I’m not really as bad as you think honey!

We got dentyne gum just once in awhile now.

I’ll try & get a picture taken as soon as I can if I can find someplace to take it.

Well –honey C.O. is around & wants to turn out the lights so I’d better close & get to sleep.

Goodnite now Honey.
Write Soon.

All My Love
