Bet You Were the Best Dancers

29 May 1945
Dear Linda and Norma,
          How are my big girls today? Swell!  Mother wrote me about how well you are doing in dancing school.  I'm truly sorry that I have to miss the show.  Bet you were the two best dancers.
          I have been pretty busy lately but I have collected a lot of pretty shells and one of these days I'll send a boxful home for you.  There'll also be some other surprises as well.
          I'm really proud of how nice you are and how well you are behaving.  Keep up the good work and I promise that when I come home we'll have lots of swell times together.  Goodnight and God bless you.
