I Love You,

Oct. 28, 1942. A.D.

Love Me?

Hello my Dearest One,

I love you, yes I do—J’aime Vous, You te amo.

How is my Darling today?—I feel pretty good myself. No new in that is there?

So you finally got your graduation ring back—That was almost a miracle wasn’t it? I’m glad you he finally gave it to you.

So you and Twila are going to take some strenuous exercises (for my benefit) Ha. It is a good idea if it works—Hope it works.

On the exercise subject I believe I (wo) know one that might work. It is used to make abdominal muscles stronger—takes away flabbiness, protruding, bulging, overhanging “German Goiters” etc. You lay flat on your back—fold arms across chest—hook your feet under something and rise to a sitting position—keeping back straight. If this is too strenuous you can do the same thing by keeping your knees straight and raising both legs together as high as you can and letting them back to the bed or floor—then repeat until you can’t do it anymore. The last one would probably be the best for you.

Another idea is—Some girls when


they think they are the victim of a slip and want to get rid of it as quick as possible (for various reasons. ha)—take 5 grain quinine tablets (I don’t remember how often or how many at one time). and also drink lots of water with them. Then before they go to bed that evening they take a bath in lukewarm water rubbing themselves downward throughout the mid section—(too bad I can’t show you how.) The reason for all this is to hasten menustration and I have heard it (say) said that it it works wonders along that line. You might be able to find out more about it somewhere.

If I remember right you take 1 tablet before breakfast, dinner, supper and before going to bed, accompany each tablet with a glass of water. It should be done on a day when you can stay at home be cause I guess it makes you slightly dissy and light headed, I’m not sure but it may make you slightly sick also.

One thing I’m sure of—a Doctor could settle the matter very satisfactorily probably to the day. I hear it has been done quite often under similar circumstances. Suit yourself what you do. I suppose you would be slightly embarrased [above line r; below line rr] if you went to see a Doctor but I imagine that you will someday—(I think you will want to someday.) and besides that would


be the safest and surest.

So Mary (whoever she is) More power to her—They are lucky people—Yes!

I like the way you end your letters with lines from songs. I always think of you when I hear a pretty song. I seldom hear (new) any songs anymore but when I think of you there is a song in my heart, so—there is always a song in my heart.

Alvino Rey is now playing some his arrangement of some Overture—I couldn’t say it much less spell it. It is a “Baby” tho.

Well Honey—Guess I’d better say

Good Afternoon Sweetheart

I Love You

Here’s to a happy Christmas.
