[September 25, 1934]
All day Sunday I waited for Monday and a letter from you. Disappointed Monday I longed for Tuesday--longed for a word from you. The last mail has just been delivered. Now I will look forward to getting a word from my love tomorrow.
Don’t even have a picture to gaze at when I’m dreaming and planning--dreaming of you-- planning for you.
Only one letter from Mother since my arrival. Her reference to you--altho’ an unusual expression for her--yet is most gratifying one to her first born. Destroy Mother’s letter and write if you want to. All my love--Lyndon
