26 June 1946
Dearest Darling Sweetheart:
In spite of the fact that our roads are still out, they managed to carry some of our mail through the deep water in the washout. It was certainly good to have your good letters of June 13th, 14th, and F15th. There is nothing in all the world like your letters to help me through these tough days. I got three other letters, they were from the following people: Holly’s and Gail, (Gail sent a little card of thanks for the headscarf and also told about the pearls). From what the Hollys said in their letter, she must have like the pearls very very much. And the other letter was from Betty Weiskopf.
This has really been another very miserable day. It has been raining continually since about 9 o’clock this morning and from the looks of things, is going to continue to do so the rest of the night. My heart just aches for the poor Korean people, for in this area at least it means the destruction of the rice crops. Outside of your precious letters, everything has been routine here at the hospital. Such as calling in the wards and several different men were here to see me about various problems.
We have just now finished choir practice with followed our midweek service. There were about twenty-five out for the midweek service this evening. I spoke on this theme, “What More Do You Need?” The scripture was the 23rd Psalm. I won’t go into detail now, but when I come back I will show you the outline.
One of the letters which I received today was your good letter written while you are out to the cottage. I’m glad that you were able to have a day out there. I only wish I could have been out there with you. I’m pretty weary and it will be good to go to such a place for a rest. I only wish you could have been out there for 4 or 5 days instead of just one day.
Beloved, I’m going to have to bring this letter to a close if I hope to have it in the mailbox in time. So I must close for tonight. God bless you and the folks in all things.
Yours forever in Christ’s love,
