Amy Embry called me up & we chatted for quite a while. She claims air mail is faster than V-mail, but so far, that hasn’t been true in our case. I always get your V-mails before your air mails, altho’ I must admit I enjoy your air mails more because they have more news & details.
As I finished talking to Amy, Mrs. Bingham, our neighbor across the street, came in, and I promised her I’d buy a $100.00 bond from her as soon as I receive your money order for $80.00. It should be along shortly, I believe!
Well, I have an app’t for Tues. to give blood! It took me quite a while to get around to it, but now that I have, I guess I’ll give as many times a I’m able.
After I finish this letter to you I think I’ll start the book “Seasoned Timer” by Dorothy Canfield. I remember this book as being “recommended reading” in several classrooms.
Today, I heard from the Melnikoffs—announcing the birth of Ruth Ann Melnikoff on Nov. 15, ’44. Gosh, isn’t that wonderful?—I shall send them some sort of a gift Saturday. Also—rec’d a card from Geo. Miller—he’s still at Fort Sam Houston. By the way, dearest, you might send the Melnifoffs a “congratulatory” note.
Today, for no good reason, I kept recalling the day we spent together in Longview, Texas, after our bag was stolen & the train was late. I remember our walking ‘round & ‘round the town--&, I wasn’t bored. You never have bored me—you’re a fascinating companion & husband & I love you dearly, my darling.
