Dear Art,

I’ve had quite a busy day today, darling.  I got up at 7:00 this morning but the train was late, getting me to New York about 45 minutes late.  As a result, I wasn’t ready to begin job hunting till about 11:00.

I made the rounds to four different agencies – walking most of the way.  I’m getting quite proficient at getting turned down.  After walking around so much, the heat started getting the best of me so I came back here.  I don’t think I was ever so hot as I was today.

It’s 10:30 now, darling, and Shirl and Betty are already in bed.  Shirl’s very homesick, or so she sounds.  Betty is going home Saturday for about a week and a half.  She’s going to be a bridesmaid.

While writing to you, I’m making myself the second grilled cheese sandwich of the evening.  There.  I just finished the sandwich and it tasted real good.  But I ate too much.

Darling, I miss you so much tonight.  I wish you were able to give me at least one kiss to sleep on.  I love you, and till tomorrow’s letter –

All my love,


(Tomorrow – Van Johnson in town.)
