My Only Darling,
Just recieved [sic] another letter from you faithful Pet and it’s made me ashamed of myself for not writing you last night. There wasn’t anything to tell you except how much I love you and even then I can’t tell you how much darling. xxx
I was in bed at 6 last P.M. and didn’t get up until 7-30 this morning. Gee! but aren’t I just too lazy
As you have already noticed we were not on early flying. The B-s never put the notice up

until about 1/2 past 6 so I believe and we were not on it as expected. Had I [deleted] not [/deleted] known about 1/2 past five I would have been in Lincoln to cuddle you last night dearest Angel. After I rang you I wanted to go in so much that I became cheesed off. Hence the early entrance to my flea bag.
Anyway – I am going to Lincoln tonight or “bust” and I have hopes of seeing you before you see this letter. Darling I love you.
I tried to phone
