Sarah, My Beloved Darling:

This has been another rounder of a day, and right now I’m so tired and weary I can hardly hold my head up. However, it is good to have days like this one because that way they seem to slip by faster, and I’m glad for that fact, for the time can come none too soon for me. I’m so very lonesome for you in every way. There wasn’t any mail today but I hardly expected any after receiving as many letters as I did yesterday.

  I spent almost the entire morning calling on the men in the various wards. I did get to do some reading before dinner but not very much. As soon as dinner was over, Don, Chaplain Minor and Miss Mason and I left for Seoul. I left Miss Mason, Chaplain Minor and Don at the home of the French Consulate and his family while I went to all the various places to try and pick up mail for different patients. I also got several money orders for the men. And then besides that, I took care of a problem case which needed attention. After that was done, I returned to where Miss Mason, Chaplain Minor and Don were waiting. I do wish you could see their children (the French consulates).  They have two girls and a boy. The girls are 5 and 6 years old and the little boy is four. They are the sweetest things you can imagine. I’m sure you know what I was thinking, don’t you? Won’t get be good when we can have our own family, Beloved?

  It was rather late this afternoon when we got away, and as a result, we got back here rather late for supper. They told us all about the trying experiences they had in different concentration camps. They are hoping to leave for France via the United States within the next two months. Someday I’ll tell you all about the fine visit we had. I know it will be of interest to you.

  After having a snack to eat I delivered the mail to the various patients and also the money orders. And behold, when I returned to my office I found four more old friends over here to visit Don and I from the 184th Infantry. It surely was good to see all of them again. We had a most enjoyable evening and I was interrupted on a couple of occasions to see men about some problems they had. The other men just left a few moments ago for the 184th. So you can see now that my evening just completely slipped away. It is good to see old friends.

  It was rather cool today and it’s getting much colder again this evening. Well, Beloved, this isn’t a very good letter I know but I must try to have a little rest before morning. God bless you Lover in all things, and remember, I love you much more than ever.

 Always just yours, Lover,


 Colossians 3:3
