To: Ruth Barrell
My own Dearest Ruthy:
I can only write you a short note tonight for if I am to see you tomorrow, must shave
and do some other things tonight. I mean to see you tomorrow, Dearest, and you can
expect to see me surely.
My dearest Love, Monday evening was a very lonesome one for me. O longed
to be where my heart is, with you, and tonight is only a little less so because
twenty-four short hours will bring us together once more.
I want to send you kisses, and love for last night and tonight and best
wishes for every detail of your welfare.
Be good to yourself, Dear, and
accept my best love for
Pardon this short note, and share my joy in anticipation of tomorrow evening.
May have something mutually interesting to tell you.
