My Dearest Darling Sweetheart:

Patch from the 98th division.

Well, another day is just about gone now. The rosy tinted clouds are bidding us farewell until sunrise. And in short, how good it will be to see dawn again. This has been the best day we have had since May 20th, that is I mean as far as weather is concerned. It wasn’t quite as bad as yesterday but it was worse than any of us care to experience. At least I was able to dry out, and from the looks of things I’ll be dry for awhile tonight. Just a few minutes ago I was handed three letters. They were all from men in the 98th, I was disappointed when I found there wasn’t a letter from you. These letters were very good from my old outfit and I appreciate them remembering me as they do. Well Darling, it is about dark and I must close for now. God bless you, My Lover.

Yours alone in Christ’s love,


Colossians 3:3
