darling, you're my best and most sympathetic audience!
I spent the whole afternoon all disrobed but for my underwear shorts, pooch! No, darling, no new lover - but wonderful, marvellous, unusual sunshine! Tonight my tummy's red, my back is boined [sic] - and I feel like a baked potato - but *oh* so healthy - and not a muscle in my body - *so help me*!!
The news is *terrific* - the Brest peninsula is just about ours - and two columns on the way toward Paris!! *Yipe* -! Gee, ma, I wanna come home - *to you*!!
G'nite, beeby [sic] - please keep healthy and happy - for *everything's* going our way. If only we can hold on a *little* bit longer. All my heart, darling - sweetest of sweet dreams until I'm right there next to you again - *so* close.
