My Darling Wife:
How are you this morning Honey? Fine I hope. Yesterday I got a letter from Marie & one from Ada. They gave me a lot of dope from that end of town.
I like to get letters from Ada. You know what a chatter box she is. Well, she writes letters the same way. Very long & very newsy. I'm sorry that I can't send you any news from this end as everything is pretty much "status quo" at least as far as I'm concerned.
Last night a couple of the fellows and I went into town. That is a small village about a mile & half from where we live. We rode our bikes and all in all I had a pretty good time. We had a couple glasses of beer and then rode back home. At least it was a change from the continual hum drum of camp. I wish I would hear from Bob as I would like to look him up.
GeeHoney I sure do miss you more & more each day and I just can't wait until I see you again. But I keep thinking of how sweet and pretty you are and how much more I'll appreciate you after being away. Well Honey please write often.
Remember how much I love you.
With all My Love
