There isn’t much to write about tonight, any way I can always write and tell you how much I love you, (huh). Honey I just got through washing my clothes, so I’m all set for tomorrow, all the boys went to the show or the P.X. and Kapinus and I are stating in tonight cause I have to write to my honey, and I want to study a little before I go to bed.
Honey you really have a time with your hair don’t you, any way don’t about it cause I like it no matter how it looks, (so there) I just had mine chopped off a little, Kip that Kapinus isn’t a bad barber, he did a pretty good job.
Honey I have a confession to make – I didn’t go to church last Sunday, I didn’t mention is cause I thought you would give me heck. any way I promise not to miss mass anymore, am I forgiven? – thanks hon. your swell honest. Hon I write to you every day only when I write on a Saturday or Sunday the mail doesn’t go out til Monday so that is why you don’t get my mail every day.
Gee honey you really went on atare, but hon don’t drink to much, cause when you said you almost got in a wreck, I almost had a fit – I know you don’t drink much honey but gee, you might take and extra one some time and it may affect you, o honey promise to take it real easy when you drive, don’t get me wrong nut , cause its only because I love you and I don’t want anything to happen to you. I didn’t know they had a Chinatown in L.A. see I learn something every day, did you ever eat Chow Mein hon? I had it once that was enough for me (man) it was awful.
Hon about that new piece (Close To You) I haven’t heard it yet, but I’ll sure listen for it. When I hear (You’ll Never Know) I always go into my trance too, So were both in the same boat kid. Honey I drew a picture today of our future home other than the one in Berkeley, but it would be more fun to draw if you could help, anyway I was just fooling around, cause honey there are a lot of things that you might want that I slipped up on. Darling I’ll have to close now cause I do want to study a little, so excuse it (huh) And darling I love you with all my heart, and I miss you darling, sometimes I wonder how I can stand it with out you, honey its really stuff isn’t it?
Love and Kisses
Say hello to all for me
(I love you)
