Dad went to the Post Office this morning to mail my
letter, and I hated to ask him to go again this afternoon.
I thought I'd wait until tomorrow, but I was afraid
I would lie awake thinking about that letter waiting
for me. About 4:45 P.M. I took off, and I got to the
P.O. just in time. Now that I've read your letter, I'll
sleep like a baby, and I hope I'll dream of you. The
letters you mail in the morning get here in less than
A couple of cousins came to visit yesterday. They tell
everything they hear, so I didn't say anything about
Nicky Junior. They kept saying how good I looked, and
I kept holding my stomach in. Everyone will know soon
Say Hon, don't make the Captain mad. He might not let

" I'm so sorry I missed seeing you in Atlanta "
I'm sorry I kept you waiting for a letter. I couldn't
write while I was in Tennessee. I wrote Monday June
7, and Tuesday June 8, we went to the Evansville airport,
got on planes, and jumped into Tennessee. We were in
Tennessee until yesterday. I received only three letters
from you, and I was a little disappointed. You said
you were going to write to me every day.
I'm so sorry I missed seeing you in Atlanta. I'm glad
you got home safe. I thought you might be there, and
I looked for you on the platform, but I didn't see you.
There were hundreds of people at the station, and I
couldn't get off the train. I wish we had met, if only
for an hour or two. You say you arrived in Atlanta at
9:00 A.M. and did not get a train until 5:45 P.M. That
was a long wait. I knew there was only a chance that
we would meet.
Dr. Scott said he would take care of everything for
you and Junior for $150. Does he want it all at once,
or can we pay monthly? Remember, you are supposed to
get six more bonds and an insurance policy.
The food you sent me and Angelini lasted well. The cheese
was excellent. The wax melted off the paper, but that
was O. K. Angelini said to tell you thanks for being
so swell to him. I love you.
