My darling Johnny:

Here I am at long last! I hope you’re in the best of spirits, honey.

In your letter of Sept. 14 you said that you’d meet me at the airport being you noted in my letter that I’d hop the next plane to the Pacific to cheer you up in case you were not feeling so cheerful. Well, I’ll have to break that date now for the thought of meeting a Man (and a Marine at that) was too much for me! So, now I’m a physical wreck. Honestly, life plays tricks on humans! Oh well, I’d only be added trouble to you anyway...
