25 November 1942

Walt finally gets some forwarded letters from Ruth, but none written after she hears about his move to Texas, so the conversation is still kind of one-sided.

A transcript follows the letter images.


I Love You,

Nove 25, 1942


I just received a forwarded letter from you. Fields sent it to me. It sure is a very nice letter. But—you still didn’t know that I was in San Antone!


I just received 5 or 6 letters from you—The sweetest letters a guy could get. While I was reading them I could have kicked myself of coming here. I sure did break up some nice plans. I hope I didn’t break them perminantly (or sompin) They were wonderful letters. I didn’t really know how sweet they were—till I missed a few. But, They make me feel like a heel, in a way.

(I) To tell the truth—I’m stumped, I don’t know what to say—I really don’t. I’m not going to say anything until tomorrow.

I take my recheck in the morning—I’ll probably know then whether

I stay or not. If I do—or if I fail, I will try to figure out a way for us to carry out our plans.

I think it was a very nice act of your mother to cash a bond in—I told you she was allright didn’t I?—I think she is too.

Honey—I don’t know what to say—I don’t know what side of the fence I’m on. If I find out tomorrow I’ll let you know immediately. Till then,

Goodnight Sweetheart

I Love You

Once more I’ll say—Those were very, very, nice, lovely—beautiful letter you wrote me.

I Love You

x Walt x
