Tuesday night

12 midnite [sic.]

Darling;

Am trying to write this on my stationary box, sitting in bed. Being in a room, can have the light on.

I enjoyed your cross word puzzle, but don't have much time to do the [piecing?]. I just now got it together. I already read your other letter. Honey, please don't be blue, it makes me blue too. It's so easy to succumb to the blues once you give them a chance to get you down. Please keep that chin up for daddy. I love that pretty face of yours, don't spoil it by look sad + feeling blue.

Maybe if the Good Lord would help me get a break, (though I really shouldn't ask of him) + get into aerial gunnery school + get stationed someplace nice for awhile, we could arrange to be to gether, but honey, as things stand now, I just can't see it.

Since you've decided not to go to work yet - I'm going to try to get a 3 day pass for Mon Tues + Wed + possibly get the wk end thrown in for good measure. Don't expect it to go through, but pray with me + keep your fingers crossed. If it should work out
