Between Times

18 Jul

New York, NY
Aug 10, 1898

From: William A Gray
To: Ruth Barrell

My Dearest Ruthy:

Just another line “between times” to carry to you the deep love and best wishes I
always feel for you, a message so satisfactory to repeat.

Went to the jeweler a few minutes ago and found your ring not yet ready. He
promised it surely for tomorrow afternoon.

Well this has been a pretty mean sort of a day here, likewise I presume in New
Providence. Had a visit from Papa today and took him to dinner. He said Mama was better.

This week is going slowly but surely, and it won’t be long until I again turn toward
home and you. From the moment I leave you my thoughts turn to the time of our next
meeting and the pleasure to attend it.

Don’t work too hard, Dearest, get lots of sleep — (“the same to you, sir”) — and be a
good girl generally.

Cannot take any more time now, so will close.

With much love and kisses,

I am

As ever your
