I am going to get me a panama hat to-night, — to match yours, sweetheart

My own Dear Precious Darling.

It sent my feelings a flying last night when I came home and read your dear letter from Alton. Dearie dearie, dearie, dearie, dearie, dearie, I couldn’t eat but a little supper. It made me feel as though I could tear down hills and build up mountains, I was more happy, more joyful, more encouraged, more light-hearted, and more in love than ever if possible, while at the same time I was more sad for, precious dearie, I want you, I want you, I want you, I want you right here, now, in my arms. Oh I love you love you love you love you love you love you love you. I had to do something last night, I couldn’t stand it, I didn’t want to go away and I didn’t want to stay home, — I wanted you dear I wanted you, that is all I want, I love you.

Vanity Fair amusement park had just opened in Providence, R.I. when Chester and Elmer visited.

I finally went down to “Vanity Fair” with Elmer, Elmer had a pretty good time with me I guess for he says he wants to go again, somewhere, to-night. But darling no one knows but just yourself how I felt all the time we were there, I was nearly crazy, but I had to do something.

Dearie, come back to me, I want you, I love you. I dread to-morrow (Sunday) I cannot stand it very much longer. Everything will come out allright yes dearie I know it will, it must. Everything where love and you are concerned will come out allright. The minister is at your house I guess for I saw a light there last night (and it made me feel just as sick at heart as no light did) I can’t get myself to go up dearie, I want you I want you I want you O darling I want you to come back, I love you. I am going to get me a panama hat to-night, — to match yours, sweetheart. My folks all send their love. I love you I love you I love you with all my whole heart dear I love you.


p.s. Dearie, I missed my car to write this for I love you

I want to kiss you dear, I want to hugg you too
