Don't Stay in the City Alone!

Tuesday, August 1, 1950

20 Cooper Street
Southampton, NY

Dear June,

Well, darling, I went to see the lawyer again today.  He called up the district headquarters in N.Y. and talked to the person in charge of the enlisted reserve.  He’s also sent a letter to him.  Anyway I guess we’ll get things straightened out.  I may have to go into the city though.

I didn’t paint tonight.  Secunda called me up to see if I was coming but I decided to wait till tomorrow night.  I went to the movies instead – The Flame and the Arrow.  It was pretty good.  Then I dropped in at Gene’s for a minute afterward.  All the guys shook hands with me and welcomed me back.  I didn’t stay long though.

It’s been an awfully hot day, with lots of humidity.  I hope it wasn’t too bad in the city.  Since I haven’t heard otherwise, I assume that Shirl must still be there.  Don’t you dare stay in the city alone, darling!  You come right home!

Boy, I hope you can read this sloppy letter.  I’m all out of practice writing.  I love you very very much, my sweetheart.  I’ll be looking for you Friday night.  Don’t work too hard.  (I know you won’t.)

Good night for now, my darling sweetheart.  M-m-m if only I could squeeze you in my arms now, and kiss you good night.

All my love,


(Tomorrow – Robbed!)
