Plumber to Connect Gas Range



Wednesday 5 April 1944, 1730

Dear Eleanor,

          Another day is over--another day closer to Saturday night, then Sunday, and then we'll all be together again.

          Went downtown with Gilman last night.  Had a couple of drinks and turned in at 10:30 P.M.  At noon today I bought a couple of emblems and a box of NestlĂ©'s chocolate.  After posting this letter I'm going to play volleyball till it gets dark and then over to B.O.Q. for a little bull session and so to bed.

          Glad to hear that you've got everything straightened out.  I'm going to have to get a plumber over Friday afternoon to connect the gas range.

          Nothing new happening here, so no gossip to spill.  I said I was going to play ball, but I was wrong.  I must go and place my call to you. God alone knows when I'll get through.

          Love and kisses to all my girls.

Your daily lover to be,


P.S. Got a card from Ruth today.  Identification bracelets in sterling silver are $10.40.  Priced same downtown last night at $18.50.  Do you think Deb really wanted to go that high for a gift for Dave?
