Dear Gg.
Just a short note to explain night letter. Firstly, I decided I’d like to have a few dollars in my pocket when I’m traveling home. Secondly, furloughs may be pushed ahead, and so I’ll need the money sooner than expected.

Everything fine and dandy; but am getting awfully impatient. The days just drag – each one seeming like an eternity.

George, so that we have no arguments when I’m home, please start cussing yourself, that is use up all your “cuss words” now. For I’m going to want some money. Fran’s 21st birthday is in March, and I want to go “all out” in my present to her.

Perhaps, you don’t see it; but I’m in love. George, I’m as sure of this, as I’m definite in my desire to be home. So, let’s argue, (this will be inevitable; but I warn you, futile,) but not too much. I’d like my stay to be as peaceful and tranquil as possible.

I would appreciate tickets for a show. Any show for any night you think appropriate. Please, if no trouble is involved, see what you can do.

Have very little time, so must close – tout a coup.

Enjoyed your letter immensely. You’re still my favorite letter writer.

Hope Frau & Commando Jim are fine and dandy.

Stories – I should be able to go on for days at a time.

My hand being strong – accept a handshake now – I’ll still have plenty left –
As Ever –
Bob
