Dearest Darling Sweetheart:-
Well, today has been a very busy one – it is now about 9:30 P.M. and I’m really tired. I had three services today with a total attendance of 88. It has rained all day.
Of course I didn’t receive a letter from you today and I am surely lonesome tonight Dear. But how grateful I am to God that I know you love me now and forever and that each passing day you love me more than ever. The constancy of your love and devotion is always an inspiration to me.
I suppose you had a very busy day at North Shore and I’m sure you did a good job, the kind to bring glory to Christ’s name. I surely thought of you often today-how were the Intermediates?
Tonight they had five women at our officer’s dinner and they are all smoked, as did all the officers-I was the only officer not smoking, the air was so thick it was blue. It was really choking.
I haven’t received any more orders as yet. The Catholic chaplain “O’Gorman” hasn’t either-as we have understood from the head chaplain at Brigade we are to leave here together for San Francisco. I hope we hear soon, this uncertainty is really hard, for you cannot plan a thing and I have no idea of how to get ready for moving.
I will have to make out my monthly report in the morning so that will take a little while, then after that, O’Gorman and I are going to Brigade in Los Angeles to see if we can find out any further details on our move so we can make some kind of plans for the future.
Darling, I want you to know I love you more tonight than ever. You are so precious to me and only in heaven can you ever know how much you mean to me and how much you have done for me. God bless you my Dearest and thank you again for being such a good wife to me.
I am so tired that I must close for now-but it does not in anyway take away from my love for you.
For always yours alone
in Christ’s love my Dear,
P.S. My Utmost for today was surely good, wasn’t it?
Second note of the day.
Dearest Darling Sweetheart,
This is just a note along with the foot locker keys I’m sending home to you. I love you more this morning than I did last night. My life will always be a song of praise to our Heavenly Father for such a wonderful wife as you are to me.
It is raining this morning so it is not going to be so good getting out to the field positions.
I hope Mom and Pop and you like what’s in the top of the foot locker for you.
I want to think awhile now before I leave for my services – so God bless you my Dearest.
Forever yours alone in
Christ’s Wonderful Love,
