Dearest Jean:

Well, honey, I guess this will be another short letter. I went to town last night to get my radio. He hasn’t fixed it yet. I sure miss it. It’s a week since I took it to town and that is the last time I was in town. All I did, honey, was go to the radio ship and from there I went to a show and back to the depot.

I miss you so much, honey, I don’t know what to do. I received two letters from you yesterday. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. Also rec. one from Dot. I sure was glad to hear from her. Tell her thanks a million for everything she’s doing. I guess I would go crazy if you didn’t have her to take care of you, honey. As long as you do everything she tells you I’m sure nothing will happen. I’ll try to write her soon, but tell her not to be mad if it takes a couple of weeks.

Honey, I’m so sorry you felt so bad when I told you I had to meet Smith. All we were going to do was walk around and have a beer. You know I wouldn’t go out with any girls or do anything wrong. I love you too much to do anything like that. The only thing is every time I go out I’m by myself and I get so lonesome. I thought maybe if I would go with Smith I wouldn’t feel so bad.

Well, honey, I just went to chow. I’ll try to write a few more lines.

I think I told you we had to wear our whites again. But yesterday (Mon.) it rained and got so cool we had to go back to blues. So far I only had my whites on one time. The weather sure is funny in this country. I’ll sure be glad when I can get back to Mo. I don’t think I’ll ever leave it again.

Well, honey, it’s almost time to go to work. I’ll try to write more tonight. Sending you a paper so you have something to read.

How is “Butch” coming along honey? Please take good care of yourself, honey, & “Butch.” I’m thinking of you every min. of the day. Miss you so much. I hope & pray every day we can be together soon, honey. God be with you always. Also “Butch.”

All my love & kisses to both of you,

Your Frank.
