Sarah, My Beloved Darling :
Well, at last some of your back letters are starting to catch up to me. It seems like ages since some of them were written. Darling, I received 10 letters from you alone today. They were yours of February 1st, 2nd, 16th, 19th, 20th, March 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th. Lover, those letters were like mana to my hungry soul, I’ve only had a chance to read them once because of all there has been to do today. Besides your wonderful letters I got letters from the following people: Jeanette Mason’s father, Captain Main, Mrs. Sims, Connie, Dolores, Hansen’s, Don McClintock and two from Paul Vogel. That was really a lot of mail and because of so very much to do all day I haven’t even had enough time to read through it thoroughly.
Darling, this has been such a very full day that I haven’t been able to accomplish near all the things I had hoped to do. I had more interruptions than you could shake a stick at. Honestly, at times it is trying. I haven’t been able to prepare as well as I had hoped for tomorrow and it is so very late now that I must try to get a little rest.
We went to the Saturday evening Social Hour of the Youth for Christ group and naturally it is late now for it is quite a long way over there. I don’t believe I would have gone tonight only that they asked me a couple of weeks ago to lead the Bible baseball game this evening on the book of Exodus.
Sweetheart, I’m sorry to write you such a short letter but be this known unto you, if all the printing presses in the world were mine I could never tell you in words just how much you mean to me in every way. I must get a little rest for tomorrow and its responsibilities. By the way, Chaplain Robinson left for the States today. I’ll tell you about the situation when I get back there. God bless you Lover in all things.
Always just yours, in Christ’s love,
P.S. Enclosed find a nice Valentine which Harold and Buena sent me.
