Hello honey –
Well, I’m sitting in Dr. Winterer’s office writing this on my lap. I’m early for my appointment so thought I’d write to you. I guess you read in the papers by now there is a strike of all streetcars & buses here. They went out at 12 o’clock last night & haven’t settled it yet. Geo R. took Dot & I down this morning & Vic picked us up this evening in George’s car. Boy, you should have seen it downtown! It was really a mess! Every car was loaded! I don’t know much about it because I haven’t seen the papers yet but just to think about it makes me mad! From the way Huber talked he made plenty of money, though. I’ll send you some clippings soon. I guess now would be a good time for the soldiers to strike in Italy — now that they are so near Rome!!!! I wonder if the Gov’t. would give them more money??? Well, I don’t even want to talk about it — I get so mad, but I hope they get it settled sometime tonite. I don’t want to ask Geo. to take us to work again tomorrow. But if it’s not settled, it’s easy to get a ride — everyone picks people up. It’s getting home that is a problem.
My first day at work was pretty “messy” because of the strike. Some of the kids didn’t come in & we had all we could handle. We were so busy, I didn’t get to find out about my back pay but will tomorrow. Our office is air-conditioned you know, & it’s plenty hot when you get outside.
Honey, I just read your last letter over & you said that USO in S.L. had a nice place to dance but you know me & dancing. You said it as if you would go to dances if you thought you could dance!!! Would you go to dances & dance with girls? It might be selfish of me to not want you to but I love you so much & I can’t stand being away from you. I haven’t been home yet (Vic brought me to Grand & Meremac) but I hope I have a letter from you when I get home!
I love you so much, honey, I could never tell you how much!
Please take good care of yourself & pray real hard this is over soon.
I’ll write again tomorrow but will be thinking of you every minute. Write & tell me what you do every day & nite. Be good & God be with you always, All my love, Jean
It’s about 7:00 PM now & I just came out of Dr. W. office. I’m sitting on the porch. Boy! That’s the first time I ever had Dr. W. really hurt me! The Novacain didn’t take or something & man, it hurt plenty. He had to grind my tooth down so he can put my “pivot” tooth in.
Well, honey, guess I’ll have to walk home so I’ll get going. I love you. Your, Jean
