A “shortie” today, due to the exigencies of war. Ahem – that sounds important. It really isn’t though. I spent the morning visiting 3 of the batteries, dear, chiefly to determine whether I would award any Purple Hearts – or not. In case you don’t know it, sweetheart, I am authorized to make such an award and keep a stock of them on hand. I’m sorry to say that I’ve had occasion to give them out in several cases.

driven through on his way to visit 3 batteries.
No mail for a couple of days, darling, but it’s really a wonder we ever get any these days – we jump around so much – but I haven’t heard one complaint. We all feel we’re going in the right direction and that compensates for a great deal.
I missed you a lot last night, darling. We had had a chance to dig in early and things were quiet. I caught myself dreaming of myself back home with you, and then, sweetheart, I missed you more than ever. Gosh, dear, I do love you more and more and want you as my wife more than I can tell you. So hold tight! Love to the family and
