My Dearest Ruthy:

I wonder if after these 2 1/2 years of intimacy during which time we have known
each other with all the secret doors of our “inner” character laid open so to speak, whether
you have the same exalted opinion of “your Will” that was so freely expressed in your
sweetness and letters of some 3 years ago. The letters, by reason of our changed life,
have ceased, but I think I notice in the eyes I love to look into so well the same affection as
of old, and I am so happy for it — though I know I don’t deserve anything half so good. 

For my part, however badly and outgoingly I may behave at times I want to say
further that I love you more than ever — I realize with ever increasing force what a good,
sweet, wise, thoughtful, pure and loving wife I have. What a jewel among women — this
love will always continue, it cannot fail, though life and death and for ever. I am
your loving husband

Will
