You are so precious and sweet, your letter was so lovely today as well as very inspirational. God has been so good to me to give me such a wonderful wife for a companion. Lover, words just cannot describe how much I love you. The box of cookies arrived today and it was so sweet of you to send them. At our noon meal I had some served at the officer’s mess, they all enjoyed them and said for me to thank you for being so thoughtful.
Today has been another one of those busy ones. I was on the go all day. This evening I went into Long Beach to hear Charlie and Laurie Taylor. They are holding special services at the First Methodist Church. You remember I saw him and had a lot of fun with him at Tremont Temple Baptist Church in Boston. I’m going to enclose a folder for you to read, I am sure you will enjoy it. Charlie had me on the platform with him as he did at Tremont and asked me to lead in prayer. It is a very large church, seating about 3,300. These brothers are surely doing a great work for the Lord. Robert is at Northern now but is leaving for California soon to take up work at Berkeley Divinity School, our Baptist seminary at Berkeley. That is the school of which Dr. Wilson is a graduate.
I’m so glad you got to be with Doris and Sarah, undoubtedly you had a grand visit. I wish I could have been in on part of your conversation.
Sweetheart, please pray for Mrs. Hollensteiner. She has been very bad with eyeritus. She has been under the doctor’s care and has also had to have three teeth pulled.
I answered Phyllis Van Valey’s letter today and will now mail it on for you to read.
You are such a precious Darling and I love you more all the time. I would be so happy to have you near, but I must not be impatient and make it harder for both of us. I’ll meet you in a little bit at the throne of our dear Lord.
God bless and keep you Dearest and I do love you so much.
Forever your husband because we are one in His love forever,
