Hi Honey:

Yes, I saw you in the car. I was standing on the platform between the cars; Standing room only. By the time we got to Chicago, we were packed like sardines. I couldn't even get in the aisles! [However?] we arrived in Chicago at 7:45 P.M. So was in camp by 10:30 P.M.

Cross your fingers - I hope we get paid [neigh?] yes - maybe no. Same goes for a wk end pass this wk.

Shucks I don't know what to write honey, except that I think I'd like to marry you some time soon.

Say hello to every body for me + tell [Ursa?] that I'm still gonna practice milking on one of the cows sometime

Just now got your letter + I think the dress idea is swell.

Jim must be on his way someplace on the [light show?].

Well I hope everything turns out O.K. all around + I hope I can come home this wk end.

Love Kenje.
