[May 22, 1938 ?]
I didn’t know I could miss you so much. Everything seems so vacant and I feel very lost. Guess I’ll have to hang around the office and keep everybody busy in order to keep myself from getting so lonesome that I will come tagging after you.
My cold isn’t any better. Went to the press barbecue yesterday and got hot and didn’t help it any. Spent last night at the Dodge and didn’t like it. Haven’t seen S. H. Guess he is dodging. I plan to take the apt. key to Mrs. Hoyt today.
Mrs. George has asked me to dinner tonight. May play golf with Corry Zemmerman today. I have L. E., Joe Charles & Sherman all at the office today. Fritz & Herbert are also upstairs working. Think I’ll get caught up with all my work by the next week-end. Am going to the Navy hospital at 8:30 in the morning.
I miss you a lot darling. Hope you have a nice trip and visit. I’ll feel better when I know you
are at home safe and sound.
Here is all the love one man could have for anyone to the sweetest girl that ever lived.
