My Beloved Darling:
Well, we are one day near being together, as for me, that day can come none too soon. It will certainly be grand to be together again. I’ve been very busy all day and haven’t had much time for anything. However, I did have enough time to have my devotions. I didn’t sleep very well last night. I have had a miserable cold the last few days but it is improving now. I have had treatment for it every day.
There is very little I can tell you now. We are going to have our Easter services tonight because of what is ahead of us. Tomorrow all of us will be very busy. There will not be time for services. Darling, I hope you folks have a nice Easter. In spite of all things, I will think of you and be loving you more than ever. I do hope you get the letter asking you to buy you and Mom a corsage. And the Chief of boutonniere. I will be anxiously awaiting the arrival of your back letters. I hope you get my letter telling you of my new address in good time. Because it will help in speeding the letters to me. Those letters you sent to the XXIV Corps will probably take quite awhile to reach me, as well as those which went to the 98th before you knew of my new assignment. Your letters mean more than anything can possibly describe. It is rather difficult for me to write you very interesting letters, but under circumstances I do my best. It makes it difficult to write a good letter when you have to forget to mention many of the things you do. However, I can always let you know of my limitless love for you. Remember, to me you shall ever be God’s little girl and again I want to thank you for being such a wonderful Christian wife to me. There are deep feelings in my heart which only being with you could describe.
Well my Dear, I must close for this time. God bless you my Beloved and I’ll write as soon as I can. Be sure to give my love to the folks.
Yours alone for this life and that
Which is to come because of the love
Which binds us together as one in Christ.
P.S. I’m enclosing a letter from Dave (Phyllis’s fiancé). And another letter from the mother-in-law and wife of an officer in our old outfit. His father-in-law had passed away. Save that letter.
