Darling Margie: August 3, 1940

Darling Margie:

Well here I am in the "deah Ol South" trying to kill time and make it go faster. Today we covered all of Kentucky and it was a real experience. It is beautiful around Lexington, which is the center of the Blue Grass region, but the rest of the state is very poor, and going to the dogs. I took some pictures of the famous horse farms, with the race horses and the colts. Every time I saw a white horse I made a wish, but I'm not going to tell you what it was for then I would be afraid it might not come true. However you can probably guess what it was because if you  miss me just 1/10 as much as I miss you, you'd be making the same wish too.

This will be a hurried letter because we just got in and the boys are waiting on me to go to dinner. But I wanted to drop you a line to let you know I'm thinking of you always. When we're driving along all I can think of is the marvelous time we're gong to have when you get back.

When I get back there might be a letter from my family and I can write you and tell you where they are.

Tomorrow night I shall write another letter telling you more about the trip and also how I'm going crazy waiting for Sunday to arrive, and once again how much I really do miss you.

So until then please excuse this excuse for a letter and remember all my love is for you.
