Fortniters

Nov. 3, 1942

Darling:

Just a note tonite to enclose a check. Was out last night, galloping around the reservation in a jeep in blackout, so I’m kinda behind on my sleep and my boot polishing. Hope to get a letter from you tomorrow, and I’ll write tomorrow nite if there’s possibly time. We’re busier’n a bunch of little bees, and no fooling.

Darling, I miss you so much it’s terrific. You can’t realize how much I do miss my sweet wife. Seems like even when I don’t have much time to write, I do have time to think of my wife and how much I miss her. I scooted over to the PX. this noon and they have some fortniters in stock for $1360. They only have the white one with maroon trim and the blue one with grey trim, but I’m sure we can get the natural color if we order it. You won’t be needing it for a month or so, so we have plenty of time to get what you want.

That’s about all I can write tonight, my sweet, except to tell you that I love you very, very much, and miss you terribly.

Goodnight, little Princess, from

Your own
Jim

Ed. Note—This letter has a bit of shorthand at the end. If you can read Gregg shorthand and you’d like to take a stab at what it says, please do type it out in the Comments!
