Dearest Son,


        Hello darling, I am kinda in the dumps, the radio tells us we have been losing some bombers lately and I feel quite sure they are some of your buddyís - pretty rugged - I call it.  I wonder if you can feel your heavenly father by your side guiding you and watching over your every movement.  If you try to live close to him and call upon him when you need him he will take care of you.  I promise.


        Today is Saturday Ė hope we have a good day but its just before they pay off the farm hands and they may not come to get their clothes.  We havenít had a letter from you since the four on Monday.  Hope we can hear again Monday.  Everybody is worried because they arenít hearing this week.  Suppose they will all come in at one time.  I havenít been keeping up with the mailís arrival but for some unknown reason I put it down on the calendar this time.


        We had the Whiteís for supper one night this week and she told me she would make a cake for me to send you.  Wonít that be great?  Mother leaves for Montgomery Wednesday to visit Susie for a few days.  She got such a kick out of your letter to her.  Surely was appreciate by everyone they all called me up and told me how much they enjoyed them.


        Canít think of another thing today.   Iím praying each night for you.
