My Darling Mark
Hello Sweetheart! !
I got your letter of Sept. 11 today. Also the birthday card! As you said – better late than never!
Went to a show today & seen “Anthony Adverse”. I thought it was really good!
These dogs of mine sure do get sore when I walk any distance. Probably from not being on them for so long.
There isn’t much to do around here except read, eat & sleep. But I guess I shouldn’t complain. I got a letter from my outfit today. They’re in Holland now – for curiosity sake I’d like to be with them. But there isn’t much chance of getting back with them – so I don’t think I’d like to go back over. But that’s not for me to decide.
I got a couple of letters from a couple of my H.S. teachers. A couple of old maids yet!
Well, honey, what have you been doing lately? Staying out of trouble aren’t you? I know you are. How is Lu coming along & the baby. I guess I’m going to be god-father by proxy, huh?
Honey – I don’t want to ask for anything for you to send because I don’t know how long I’ll be here yet. After I get a more stable address – then it will be alright.
You can wrap yourself up tho honey - & come on over. I sure wouldn’t stay in this hospital long!!
Well, honey I guess I’d better close for now & write home & a few more letters before I turn in for tonite. I went to Mass Sunday – first time since July. Not my fault tho. Bye for now Sweetheart. I love you honey!! Write soon. All My Love Johnny
