I wrote to Janet. Charlotte sent your pictures to me.

Hi baby –

You really shouldn’t write me such sweet letters, I felt worse after I read it than I did the night you left. It made me realize just how much we’re missing by not being together. Ordinarily I avoid thinking how much you mean to me, but after reading the letter you seemed so close, and so sweet that it was almost more than I could bear to know you were probably well on your way to Fairbanks. Really if you feel the way you say about staying in love I’m sure we can, because I’m certain of myself and I know we can work something out...
