305th Squadron, Flight C.
Here I am, still thinking of you, and wishing you were here. I haven’t heard from you in the last 3 days, whats the matter? Found another boyfriend?
I am still here, going through the same routine every day. Get up in the morning at 6:45 A.M., have breakfast at 8:15, study from 9:00 till 10:30, exercise from 10:30 till 11:30, dinner at 12:00 M. School starts at 2:00 P.M. and lasts till 10:00 P.M., lights out at 11:00 P.M. So you see, I am kept pretty busy.
I heard that Dan was over at Brooklyn Field, Alabama. That is near Mobile, Ala. I think if I can get a pass this week end, I will go over to see him. It’s only about 60 or 70 miles from here.
I suppose you will be starting school again, soon. I imagine you are glad of that.
I had a dream last night, darling, that seemed just as real as if it were really happening. It seemed that you and I were together, and sitting on the beach overlooking the Gulf. As we sat there, we could see the beautiful full moon rising over the water, and casting its light on the Palm trees, that made them glisten like silver. It was beautiful, darling, just you and I, there by ourselves. I shall never forget that dream.
What have you been doing, darling? You know everything I do, so you should tell me what you do. Remember, if you ever find someone you would rather have than me, be sure and tell me.
I have to get ready for school, now, so I will say “Adios.” “By for now.”
With all my love,
