Well [indecipherable word] Darling today is our first wedding anniversary, & here I am miles away from you But never mind Chick I'm all in one piece & our day will come, once this useless business is all over and we'll be back together once again & we certainly wont miss another anniversary. The most important thing [indecipherable word] is to keep your spirits up & don't worry. Remember Darling you are always in my thoughts no matter what I plan or work out it all revolves around you & our life together. I love you so very much Chick that it's just impossible to express myself, it is all here in my heart. Last week I received my first & only parcel, it was half a pound of Bruno & it was just like nectar it made me think of the days when I always had a pouch full in my pocket. There have been bags of parcels in so I am hoping to have more. I hope you have heard from pay accounts by now. Give my love to all at home, & keep up the good work on the home front. Keep smiling my Darling. I love you so very much [indecipherable word]
