On back: “What do you think of the two ‘Mothers?’ Pretty good, huh? June 25 ’44”
(Dot on left & Jean in new two-piece polka dot dress.)
I guess I did a foolish thing tonite, it’s so late again. I wanted to go to bed early, but Jane & Marie have been wanting me to go to the show with them. I promised them I’d go twice before & so tonite I couldn’t turn them down. They are so sweet to me & are afraid I’m lonesome! If I could only convince them – all I want to do is write to you & sleep!
Well, we went to the Ambassador after work – got in at 6:15 & the “time out” clock said quarter to twelve! It turned out they had a preview picture so we saw 3 pictures. I didn’t want to go in when I saw what time we’d get out – I had told Dot I’d be home about 9:30 or 10 & I knew she would worry. The first 2 pictures were very good but I left in the middle of the last one. I got so sleepy & knew I wanted to write you yet tonite. Anyway, I would have much rather gone to Loews & seen “White Cliffs of Dover” & got out early – or for that matter, I could go to the Armo for .30 cents – the down-town shows cost too much anyway. Well, I’m glad it’s over & I didn’t disappoint Jane & Marie again. They are really nice to me tho, they wanted to pay for my supper & my way into the show but I wouldn’t let them.
Honey, they are sure getting strict with you boys up there from the way you write. How come all the new rules about getting up & lights out? Gee, I know you will be glad to get out of there. I hope it’s soon but I hate to have you go further away from me, darling. Sometimes it seems I can’t go another day without you! I miss you so much & it gets worse everyday. I pray every day you can come home soon. Honey, don’t worry about me. I’m taking care of myself. Your letters are so sweet, I don’t know what I’d do without them. You write better than I do, so don’t say your letters aren’t nice. I love them. Take good care of yourself, darling, & God be with you always. I love you so much! Please hurry home!
All our love & kisses,
Jean & “Butch”
