frank w Nielson & Zip

This picture was not sent in this letter, but it is labelled on the back in Frank’s hand: Nielsen, Zip, & I. 

Dear Jean:

I didn’t receive any letters today, but I didn’t expect any because I got two yesterday.

Well, honey, I played a little ball tonight. Unit E lost to Unit B. 5 to 1. It was a pretty good game. But it still isn’t like Reich’s Cowboys.

Honey, are you really a sleepy head? I can’t believe it. Never thought you would ever get that way. I sure would like to see that. May be you ought to quit your job right away, honey. So you get enough rest. Why don’t you? We’ll get by, honey. You know we don’t want anything to happen to our baby. Honey, what would you name it if it’s a girl or if it’s a boy? I sure hope and pray I can be home at least by the time its born. The boys were glad to hear I was going to be daddy.

Honey, you asked about S.P. If you were here you couldn’t walk with me.We are not even supposed to talk to anybody except when something is wrong. It’s a lousy job. I’m sure glad I didn’t get regular S.P. duty. It’s hard on my feet. I was so tired I couldn’t stand much longer. That’s about all we did is walk from one tavern to another and stand for 1/2 hour. and look like dopes.

Honey do you still watch Helen’s kids on Wed. night or Sun? I hope not, You need the rest too much. I’m sure Dot doesn’t like it.

Honey, you said a couple weeks ago, you were going to send me a picture of yourself so I could see how fat you are. Why didn’t you send it? I have that nice big picture you gave me for my birthday on the wall or should I call it bulkhead? Right by my bunk where I can see it all the time. Every once in a while a fellow comes by and asks me if that is my wife. They all wonder where I got such a pretty wife. I sure was lucky.

Well, honey, it’s getting late so I’ll have to quit for now. Take good care of yourself & Butch. God be with you both.

All my love & kisses, Frank.

P.S. I’m so sorry I can’t write a nice newsy letter like you, honey. Everything is about the same every day. I love you more every day, honey. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
