At Camp

28 September 1944

My darling lover,

I’m still seating out your letter today. It will probably be in this noon[‘]s mail.

Doggone it, I’ve got to get all my darn equipment together once more. Although it shouldn’t be such a tough job. Boobsie, I don’t know what it is but I’m a great one for accumulating things. I can just barely handle my bags (the kind you carry).

The day is a foggy one and the humidity is high—it will probably rain today. I had my Florsheim shoes completely resoled & heeled with the total costs—$2.00. Good job, too. I’ll run over to the barber shop now for a trimming. The hair on the top of my head won’t need cutting for months yet.

Are you sending me the camera[?] As soon as we can I’ll be sending you snap-shots of your manly (?) husband and I hope that you’ll do the same so I can have your gorgeous face before me always. Bye for awhile and here’s hoping we get a chance to throw in a few licks before we march into Berlin or Tokyo.

No greater love hath no man than my love for you,
