My darling –
Rec. your sweet letter today, written Tues. Even since I got it — I’ve felt so blue cause you left today & are probably on the train right now! I don’t know why I should feel so bad about it cause I know you wanted to leave Utah – I guess it’s just that you’re going further away from me every minute and honey, every minute you’re away seems like a year to me! I can’t believe it’s just 2 months since you left me! I can’t stand being away from you much longer, Frank. Sometimes I think as soon as I quit my job I’ll come where you are even if I am pregnant! Oh how I wish I could! But then, they might freeze all travel & I’d be away from my Dr. And I’d never be able to get one on the West Coast as crowded as it is. I don’t know what to do. I guess I’m just blue & lonesome for you tonite. If all this doesn’t end soon I’ll go crazy!
Honey, don’t worry when you can’t write much cause you play ball or swim. I want you to have as much fun as you can. Your letters are always so sweet anyway. They are all I have these days! I’m so glad to know you heard the All-Star game. As soon as I quit – I’m going to go to the Ladies Day games with Dot & the boys. If the 2 St. Louis teams play the Series, this town will go crazy. Wish you & I could go see them play!
I hope you got to see “Mom” before you left, honey. And it was nice you wanted to visit the Church. I’ll never forget Ogden & St. Joseph’s Church cause it did so much for us. Maybe, someday we can take a trip up there & see Mom again. I’d sure like that.
I don’t see why Vic worries Bea by writing her about his dates! How does he expect her to feel? He’s crazy if you ask me! She’s got enough on her mind with all the kids & being away from him without him writing her about his dates! He ought to feel bad about it! He sure wouldn’t like it if she went out but he knows she can’t cause she’s tied down with the kids. Why doesn’t he get smart & act like the father of 4 children instead of a young single punk? What the heck – doesn’t he think all the guys are lonesome? He’s not the only one! But if the other guys can stand it – he can! I wanted to ask you so many times – honey, is he & all the rest of the Sea-Bees going to Albany, too? How about Alice & Myrtle? Did they go too?
I was going to the Armo tonite but I don’t think I can make it. They have a picture I want to see so bad but I’m just too tired. Guess I’ll take Dot’s advice & take a bath & go to bed. She & the kids wanted to stay home with me but I didn’t want her to if I just go to bed. Helen went too, with T.J. & Bob. She came over and asked me to go & thanked us both for the playsuit we gave T.J. Geo. told me Elsie K. came by last nite & I asked Helen if she told her about us & she said she wanted to but thought I wanted to tell her. I told her she could have, I wouldn’t have minded at all cause I don’t know when I’ll see them. I just wanted to tell Mom first. Maybe when I quit work I’ll go see Elsie & A. Anna.
Well, honey, I keep thinking about you on the train & I feel worse & worse so I guess I’d better quit writing until I feel better. I never felt more like crying than I do tonite! Guess a good night’s sleep will fix me up. I’m sorry if I wrote a lousy letter.
I love you so much darling & miss you more every day. Please take good care of yourself & God be with you always! I’m thinking of you every minute & just living for the day we can be together again!
All our love & kisses, Jean & Butch.
Helen started a letter to you but is afraid to send it til you get a more definite address. Hope you get these letters, honey!
