Ordered Dolls

Wednesday 29 November 1944

Dear Linda and Norma,

          My darlings, you look so sweet in your picture that I just had to write you about it.  My how you are growing and getting prettier all the time.

          I ordered dolls for both of you from Santa Claus and you will be receiving them soon.  Next year at Xmas, I'll be home and see that Santa brings a nice couch and chair for your room.  Won't that be swell?

          Did you get the books I sent you? There are several and I hope you enjoy reading them.

          Good night my darlings.  Linda, you haven't written to Daddy lately.  Have you been too busy?
