I received the package Sat. I was excited as a child on Christmas morning, they were lovely. I like to wear beads. And they are so odd. I think you are real sweet to send them to me.

I will get some time off for Christmas. I told Lieut Lett confidential about us but it was too good to keep secret so all the Naval Officers aboard ships know about it and they are planning on giving us a party and giving us a big time when we get married. So we will be a “King for a Day” ha

I received your letter today as we will be sailing early in the morning for Honolulu. I will tell you how glad I am when you said “yes”. When I read your letter it seem that I had been lost all my life and found the most happiness thing to live for.

An excerpt from “The Life Story of a lucky Tennessee Sailor that Lived to Retire” by Abb R. Truett:
November, 1940, as we came up from the south to New York on a Standard Oil tanker, I was called by the Navy for active duty. The Navy dispatched me to the U.S.S. Santee at Baltimore as a Commissioned Officer. The U.S.S. Santee at that time was on oil tanker rigged for fueling ships at sea.

Dear Mae, Read your letter this morning, sure was glad to hear from you. I am having a good time but not as good as I had last year. Of course I didn’t expect to, it is entirely different, but it will be cheaper.
