Dear Pauline,

I will leave this with thee pilot mail. He will be dismissed in about 10 minutes and we will be on our way to our destination.

Gee jack I wish I had more time off while you are out here, so I could be with you more.

I want to tell you that you are swell & sweet as you can be. I do hope you can come back soon, and I hope you will have a good time on your vacation; for Woody and Pauline certainly will make you have a good time for they are swell.

Well goody by.
