15 February 1942

Is it just me, or does this February list seem more like the longest than the shortest month? This letter is the first of two dated for the 15th, and there are several other multiples to come—just not in this month. I only list such letters separately if they are in separate envelopes. On occasions where some letters cover several days, but are in one envelope, I keep them together.

This first in the group for the fifteenth is a telegram—a late Valentine telegram.

A transcript follows the letter images.
