Dearest Judson—

Honey, I’m waiting for you to call. You said you’d call around seven and it’s quarter after eight now. Guess you had to fly or something.

The picture was in the Pelham Sun tonight and was much clearer. If I send it to you you probably won’t get it until after you come home so I won’t send it.

You remember Johnny Mullineaux don’t you, honey. He’s home on leave now. Called me tonight and was rather surprised. He’s coming over tomorrow for a while. Every little kid in school thought he was my brother. His brother, Dick, is missing over China—It’s been about six months now.

You know Gordon Hope, don’t you? He just got his commission as a navigator.

Honey, I miss you so much. This afternoon I tore my room apart looking for some snapshots that belonged in my photograph album. The room’s a wreck & the pictures are still among the missing.

Darling, please don’t forget to have some pictures taken for me. I don’t have any pictures of you except snapshots.

Golly, hon, I hope that you can get Friday night off. That would be so nice—Gee, I love you.

Daddy keeps sticking his head in & saying you’ve forgotten me—Hum. Fine thing—already.

Darling, I wish March would hurry up. It still seems centuries away. I love you so, hon.

This week did go pretty quickly up til today. Today was the longest day of the year, I’m sure. Gee, every day we’re apart seems like a year anyway. I miss you more every day.

Have you heard anything more about where they’re going to send you? Why can’t they decide to keep you at Stewart? That’s what I’d do if I were the Army.

This will have to be slightly short because there are loads of snapshots just scattered around. They wouldn’t be very comfortable to sleep on, hon, so I’ll have to get them collected.

I hope you get home Friday. I love you.

All my love,
Dottie
