Too Many Requests for Dental Treatment

Dearest Eleanor,
          Hello Sweet, here I am again.  It was close to morning when we got back from the beach last night.  I was fairly sober and after a good night's sleep I feel swell.
          This morning was the usual busy one with more requests for dental treatment than I could possibly handle.  I take as many as I can and refer the others to nearby ships.  This afternoon we had a series of drills: fire, abandon ship, and general quarters.  Then back to my room I went. "Sodom by the Sea" is quite an interesting history of Coney Island and I'm enjoying reading it.  At 5:00 PM I showered and dressed for dinner. After a delicious chicken dinner here I am.
          I got one letter from you today and it is postmarked the 18th, two days prior to the ones I received two days ago.  I'm sorry you don't like the set up there.  You sound sorry you went but I'm sure after a few days you'll get used to it and enjoy your stay.  I figured you'd be nervous making the move by yourself which was why I suggested, when your plans got fouled up, that you stay home.  Anyway by now you should be over your nerves and with a little company I'm sure everything will work out okay. Cedar Glenn is where we rented the Rausch House.  Yes I do remember that vacation.  A wonderful weekend, that is all it really was.
          The location opposite the Board of Education on 6th Street sounds okay but I bet the property is high.  You can investigate it when you get home but don't do anything in a hurry.
          Tonight's movie is a real oldie, "Hurricane" with Dorothy Lamour and Jon Hall.  Remember it?
          No more for now Darling. So good night and pleasant vacation.
Love
Gil
