My darling,

Received both an air mail and V mail letter from you today. So glad that your brother may be able to get home soon. Know that he will be just as glad to get there as you all will be to see him.

Hope your mother is feeling better now. Know that you did hate to go away from her. One thing about it you won’t be very far from home.

Love always,
“Boobie”
