Hurriedly at 11:15 p. m.
Tomorrow I world 8:30—4:30; therefore, this hurried letter this evening since it is late & I must get up at 6:45.
Don’t forget that I love you—love you more than anything or anybody!
Sweetheart—so much to write—Dad, Mom, Uk & I went to see “Dragon Seeds” tonite. Katerine [sic] Hepburn & Walt Huston—superb!
Really good picture! However, can’t stand Dad’s comments. He says “propaganda” about everything; but damm [sic], the Am. People need more films like “Dragon Seeds.” Just because Dad is aware of “existing things” is no sign other people are.
Rain again today—nuts! I hate Cleveland weather!
Signed up for group hosp. ins. thru Bd. of Educ. It’s 60¢ mos. ward service, deducted semi-annually. I took it out for myself merely & mainly for clause #6 “maternity care after contract has been in effect for 12 mos. including use of delivery room.” Hope it’ll come in necessary—huh?
Alma called tonige [sic]. She’ll be in tomorrow, so excuse me, sweets, if my coming letters will be brief until her visit is over. Harold isn’t coming—he’s got a sick Mom. I can see where Alma & I will just really “bull.”
And the mail today—Alice P’s letter worrying about males;—Martha Altman 3 mos. pregnant & Al in Camp Dix awaiting his discharge; & a letter from Syl Hirshfield saying she was “thrilled” to hear from you & she is going to send you a package. Gosh, honey, no wonder you don’t ask me for anything—you let our friends & relatives spend their money. Oh yes—a letter from Winnie Luddecke—very sweet & told me she, also, heard from High & glad you & Hugh “hit it off,” etc, etc.
Oh yes—2 letter[s] from Mort—nothing from you.
Teachers’ meeting tomorrow for sure!
Sweetheart, darling—must take my bath! Love you madly—wish you were here to wash my back.
X Goodnight my love!
I knew I forgot something. Another cablegram cam[e] from you today—o’er the phone—but hon—it sounds exactly like the 1st one. What say?
