Dear June,

Your mother just phoned and said you wouldn’t be home till Friday.  So here I am back to writing and I hope you’re going to write again, too.  Of course, I’m sorry that I won’t see you Thursday, darling.  I miss you so much.  I love you so much.  It’s so nice to know that when you do come home it’ll be for good.

Your mother was asking me about buses to Westhampton.  I don’t know if there are any.  I hope there’s a way for you to get there.

I just came from Secunda’s class a little while ago.  I started a portrait.  He has a man posing for us.

Of course, I haven’t asked you out on a date Friday yet – so now I am.  Will you go out with me Friday night?  Good, I’ll pick you up at 8:00 then.  Pretty self-confident, aren’t I?  I love you, darling.

All my love,


(Tomorrow – the excitement of moving home.)
