This won’t be much of a letter cause we are going to the Armo tonite. I wrote a nice long letter to Helen & A. Effie this aft. In fact, it took me about all aft. to write it. Wish you could read it, honey, cause I know it would make you feel good. I told them all about how happy we were in Calif. & Utah, even before we knew about Butch, & really straightened them on all the things that happened before. I wanted them all to know. Dot said it was a very nice letter & wanted to know why I never wrote her one like that! ha.
Played cards with the Dooley’s (next door) & another couple at Dot’s last nite. Lost 55 cents! Went to bed about 12 & got up at 10 – I ate a big breakfast & went to 11 oclock Mass with Dot & the boys. Didn’t do a thing this aft. but help Dot with dinner & write Helen. I was going to Mom’s but Helen said she & Aunt Anna went out with Mr. Bauer this aft. So I’ll probably go out Wed. with Helen & George. Helen said Mom, A. Anna, & T.J. went to see “Going My Way” Friday – I’m sure glad they got to see it! Be sure & see it if you get a chance, honey!
Well, I’ll write you a longer letter tomorrow darling – so until then – please take good care of yourself & God be with you, always! I love you more every day & pray we can be together soon! I’m so darn lonesome without you! Even tho everyone is swell to me – no one can take your place! You’re all I need, honey – and always will be!
Goodnite, my darling –
All our love & kisses,
Jean & Butch.
P.S. Oh yes, Virginia came by a little while ago with her 3 children. They are all so sweet! You ought to see the baby! She really liked me & wanted me to hold her! Pretty good, huh? Lots of love – J. & B.
