Our WWII Soldier Stares At The Snapshot of His Sweetheart And Loves Her All The More

My Darling Mark
         Hello Sweetheart! !
I got your letter of the 18th yesterday - the one you wrote at work. I got another letter from Cec. yesterday. He seems pretty proud of his baby girl.
         I just came back from Physio & there isn’t a thing to do but write or sleep.
         I was just staring at that snapshot of you I got in your last letter before I was hit. Remember the one of you in shorts & striped jersey? Makes me miss you all the more! Honey I got to love you more every day. I hope to hell I get to see you this year yet – bit it doesn’t look very promising – does it?
         Anyway – I pray & hope so.
         I think I’ve got most of the mail you sent to my old address now honey. Once in a while I get one about 2 months old – that’s been beat up pretty bad.
         Well, honey I guess I’ll close for now. The nurse is coming to change dressings. Bye for now Darling. I love you. I miss you so much!!
Write Soon.
All My Love Always     Johnny
