I am a King in the Kingdom of Love

My Dear Precious Darling Sweetheart,

Why can’t I have you now now now, dearie I don’t know what to say, think or do, except to hold my arms out to you and say “come back to me dear,” you will never leave me again. No dearie I am not particular at all what kind of a room or place I have when there in Alton, — as long as I get there, where you are, it makes no difference where it is that my quarters are — in the barn, shed or no house at all. I want to be where you are, dear, and I’m coming. I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you dear. I want you to be my own dear precious wife.

Did you say darling that no one on earth was capable of loving the way I do? Oh dearie, dearie you will never leave me again — I will not let you. Well — I know one — just one — that is capable of loving as much as I — she is one that does not fall in love with everyone, her love is just as strong just as deep, just as true, just as pure and just as everlasting as the strongest, deepest, truest, purest and most everlasting. I am a King in the Kingdom of Love, my power is your Love, my glory is your Love, my strength is your Love, my love my fame my fortune — is your Love. What King is more powerful or more splendid, than the King whose dominions are your Love? whose entire possessions are your Love, the richest and grandest and most beautiful.

I glory in your love dear as you glory in mine. I love you I love you my own dear precious love. Yes I do want you to be my wife. Oh darling it is nearly time for my car now and I haven’t eaten my breakfast yet, but this letter must and will be written, breakfast or no breakfast, car or no car. I love you I love you I love you I love you.

Keith’s Theatre in Providence, R.I.

Elmer and I went to Keith’s last night, the play was very good but I want you I want you I want you I want to come and see those beautiful mountains, hills, rivers and lakes. berries and flowers, and enjoy them with you with you. I could enjoy anything with you and nothing without you. Your plans are all right, of course, how could they be anything but right. I want you, I love you. Will you be my wife dear? I want you to. I like to have you say you will be my wife as much as you like me to say I want you to be. Say it just as often dearie, I want you I want you I want you I want you I want you I want you I want you to be my wife.

I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you dear.
