My Darling Mark
This is just going to be a short letter.
Did you have your turkey dinner today?
Honey – it isn’t very convenient to try & send any Christmas gifts from here & you would be lucky to get them by Easter – so I’m sending you this - this $50 money order & let you get what you really want & then you can let me know, okay? Maybe next Christmas it’ll be a lot different.
Let me know when you get it- huh? I know you don’t like it this way & I don’t either – but it’s about the surest way. Bear with me – what’s say – honey??
I’m coming along okay & feel alright. Just one more minor operation to close my leg & that will be all – I hope!
I’ll close for now honey – hope you get this before Xmas.
I love you & miss you more everyday.
Bye for now.
All My Love Always Johnny
