From February 23-27th Willis travelled by boat to Hawaii. As the letters could not be sent, he wrote them in a series and sent them when he arrived. We are posting the sections on the dates he wrote them.
Presumably : February 25, 1944
Crossed the International Date line, so dates get a bit confusing
Sweetheart, My Dear:-
Dawn broke a little before seven this morning. I went above as soon as I had shaved. We have a solid overcast and the ocean is still rather rough. But it was roughest around midnight. In spite of our ship’s size she was tossed quite freely by the great waves. We had a very good breakfast and after coming back to my stateroom I read “My Utmost,” “The Secret Place,” the Bible and “Abundant Living.” Well Darling, I’ll write you more later, for now I want to do some more reading of my Bible.
