  The letter had not arrived. On reading

through what I have written I find very

little of the love I would tell to you.

It is easy to think + sometimes easy

to talk but it is not easy to give

my soul to you on paper. I put down

the words  "I love you" + how little

they seem for the lot they mean. I

would I were with you Dear Heart of mine

that my eyes might tell what my 

pencil cannot express. But there -

that means I am longing for the

quick answer from yours - so I am

selfish again. But I do Love you

my Sweet Wife.

    Tell Kenneth Daddy is with

the Soldiers  who work for him

but that he looks forward to the

days when he can come Home +
