November 8, 1944

 Sarah, My Beloved Darling:

We had some planes today, but they didn’t bring us any more mail. So I will be looking forward to having some more mail in the next few days. I read some more of your last letters and they are such a comfort to me in this time. You are such a good wife, Dear.

Early this morning I got up and wrote a letter to Gen and Paul. It wasn’t a very long letter because I didn’t have very much time, but I did want them to know that I think of them often and love them very much. After finishing the letter I left here to see a certain soldier about trouble at home. Just one thing after another. Darling, God is been so good to us to let us know the joy of being truly happy and one forever in Christ.

Later, Captain Wilkinson and I left for the Post Office with some mail he had to deliver. While up there, we checked on a plane to get a couple of patients out of here. Which makes me think, I got very little sleep last night. In fact, I am so tired I can hardly hold my eyes open. There was an accident last night. Someday I will tell you about it, Dear.

During the noon hour I tried to do some reading but I became so sleepy that I rested for about a half an hour. Mr. Williams came later and I typed some things for him. Captain Wilkinson and I will went to the Air Base with the patients. By that time our evening meal was ready.

After supper I came back and worked on a little Christmas message for our friends. You will find it enclosed in this letter. I have been so tired it was hard to think straight. You check it over and see if there are any mistakes, I will leave it up to you to correct them for me. Do you think it will be all right? I will be very much interested in your message also. Personally, I like this idea much better than Christmas cards. Captain Wilkinson came over to visit me for a while. He was very tired and lonesome so we talked for a while.

This being movie night I decided to go and see if there was a news reel. There was, but as soon it was a it was over I came back here to my quarters and typed my Christmas message. And now I am here writing to you, Dear. As I said before, I am so tired I will cut this letter short. Other news is scarce with the exception of the fact that I love you more than ever I have before. God bless you Dear, and give the folks my love.

With Love forever in Christ 

Always yours,


Colossians 3:3
