August 7, 1936.
Dear darling wife,
I got your loving letter this after noon and was glad I am feeling good tonight but am a little lonesome at present have had a little hard week and have been two tired to do much of a night but eat and sleep but would feel better if you was here to cheer me up.
Honey I am sure sorry you had to walk over from the train. If I had thought of you walking I would have been worried to death about you what dear if you had got sick on the way

And it is right comfortable at present. The next day after you left it got cool and was very nice for a few days so honey you know I would be proud to see you any time so do what you think best.
This letter is going to be a little short for you maybe back in Oneido by now and I just had two sheets of paper this kind so I’ll hush.
To my loving Wife
Your husband who loves you always with love and Kisses
