My Darling Mark
I got your V-mail today of the 3rd – was going to write anyway tonite. I was on guard Sat & Sun. so didn’t have a chance to write.
I probably won’t be able to write for a couple of days after this, so if you don’t hear, you’ll know why – although I can’t tell you why not. I’ll write again as soon as I can.
It’s been a pretty nice day here – hows the weather in K.C.?
Have you seen Lu. or Cec. lately – I haven’t hear from Cec. for quite some time now.
Honey I’m sending this British threepence in this letter. It’s a pre-war threepence & quite rare now. Its worth 5c in our money. Let me know if you get it.
Well honey I guess I’ll close for tonite. I’ve got to write home too. I got a letter from an Aunt that I have to answer too.
Goodnite now Darling – I miss you like all hell & love you more every day. Write soon hone. I miss you.
All My Love Always Johnny
