Thursday, May 18, 1950
112 West 86th Street
It’s awful to go several days without hearing from you. I’ll certainly be looking for a letter tonight. I hope you get my first letter soon. I didn’t mail it till noon yesterday. I had it in my pocketbook all morning, but had forgotten stamps for it.
“If I loved You”* over the radio earlier tonight. It was a beautiful arrangement and put me in a romantic mood. Darling, I do love you – and I guess that’s all that really matters. If you were with me tonight, you might have to fight to tear yourself away from me! Woof!!!
And that’s after working a long day at school, too. I’m trying very hard to finish in time, but gee, I didn’t realize how much I had to do! I’m afraid I may not be able to go out with you on Sunday afternoon, darling. I may have too much to do.

All my love,
*The arrangement of "If I loved You" that June heard was probably the one released in May 1950 by Dinah Washington with Teddy Stewart's Orchestra. I don't have a link to that, but here's Dinah Washington singing "What a Difference a Day Makes," her first top 10 pop hit from 1959.
(For Saturday – a mysterious picture by June.)
