Dearest Abb,

Received your letter yesterday, Honey. I sure was glad to hear from your, I missed your letters so much. Just counting the days until I see you again.

I haven’t asked for a transfer yet and I guess it will be my luck not to get one when I want it.

This is what I have planed, if you know what month you will have more time off I will ask for my transfer for that time and try to get some time off before I start to work out there.

I told three if my best girl friends about us and they are glad that I have found someone like you. They have been married over 10 years. They say I will be happier than I am now and I think so too.

I heard from Pauline today she said that Louise was married so I guess the love bug bit her too.

I will be looking for the watch, I broke my old one and I didn’t like it anyway, so I won’t have it fixed.

Love,
Pauline
