Christine posted six of her favorites. Now, here are Kathy's.

Letter 8 in a series of 12.


October 27, 1952

My darling Anne,

Hello hon, I am keeping my promise, it’s Monday night and I am writing you.

This is a very important letter Anne and also a very serious one. This letter, you will see as you read on, will have a great deal to do with our future. There are a couple of things I want you to do. Make certain that you do them Anne. I will be counting on you.

I went in to see the company commander today. I asked him for a ten day leave starting the 26th of November. That will give us time to get a license and a blood test and all. For your birthday, December 1, 1952, I am going to give you my life, my love forever, and everything else that I have. I have made up my mind and that’s how it’s going to be. I don’t care who disagrees.

I want you to show this to your father. I will talk to him when I get home this weekend. Next, I want you to tell my mother that I want her to call that fellow who has charge of my money. Tell her that I must have that money. I don’t care what she tells him, but I want it right away. This is important Anne because without that money we are lost. Call Mom as soon as you finish this letter. You can tell her my decision also. Next I want you to put in for a transfer to D.C. I think you will be better off with the airlines. That secretarial job has been taken.

Anne, you have got to do these things. I am depending on you. Please don’t let’ me down.

I didn’t sleep at all last nite hon. I got in at 3:30, I have been thinking of you all day. I can’t keep leaving you Anne. I can’t take it anymore. I need you, and I am going to have you. I mean it Anne. Today I was a nervous wreck. I was sick and lonely. I almost cried. I won’t be away from you Anne. I love you and if you love me we will be happy anywhere.

Hon, I can’t tell you how important it is to do what I have asked you. We have got to get started sometime so let’s get the ball rolling. Don’t worry about your folks hon, when they see how happy we are they will be happy too.

I worked pretty hard today hon, I am going to hit the sack early. I doubt if I will get much sleep. I promise to dream of you.

Don’t forget hon, the sooner we make up our minds to do what we want, the sooner we will be together. Also, hon you have got to make your father realize that we are going to get married with or without his consent. I hope for the sake of everyone involved that he will decide to stick with us and not against us.

I’ll close now dear. Good nite

All my Love Forever


P.S. I miss the hell out of you.
