Monday Night 7/27.
My Dear Sweetheart,
I was mighty glad to get yours this noon. I did not expect it until tonight. You always write such a sweet letter and I always get a kick out of it. You certainly know what to say to this old bachelor and it always hits the spot.
Had a letter from Mr. Pettit (Dallas) today. He is keeping busy and seems to be making some money. He expects his brother from Legion the latter part of this month.
I note with interest what you had to say about Mr. Owens’ letter. I feel for him, Dear, for I don’t see how anyone could help but love you. I consider myself the luckiest person in the world and I am mighty proud of you, Dear. I didn’t think I could love anyone like I do you. I am always wishing for you and I hope the time will not be distant when I can have you with me for “keeps.” I sometimes feel that I should come for you while you have the notion, for fear that you may change your mind, but I can’t believe that you are that kind as you have been too careful in what you said. I guess that is one reason why I love you so much.
It must be difficult for you, Honey, to settle on one and have a number of your dates eliminated. Undoubtedly you miss some good times. Personally my dates with girls have never been many and I am just as happy as I can be with the idea that I have won such a jewel as yourself. I hope you will always be happy and I am going to do everything I can to make you happy.
I love you with all my heart, Sweetheart. Sweet dreams.
