My darling,

Received two V mail letters from you today which were dated Jan. 24th & 26th. Also received one from Mamma. In one of your letter [sic] you mentioned the picture show “The very thought of you.” We have [sic] seen it yet or least I don’t remember it.

Hope you are doing alright in your new position. Know that you will do good. Only hope that you will like it.

I’m still getting along very nicely. Hope your mother is feeling well.

“Love always”
Boobie
