My Dearest Jack

I received your postcard dated May 2nd this morning & was pleased to hear you were alright but sorry about your knee dear. I hope it is still on the mend. You can imagine how anxious we have been to hear from you, as you were reported missing soon after I received your last letter, dated April 22nd & this is the first news we have had of you since. I have written to you every week as usual & I sent you a lot of papers too, but I don't suppose you would be allowed to have those anyway. I also sent the other pair of socks & a few cigarettes the day before I went to Tacoma (April 30th) so if you haven't already received them they will be at "headquarter." I should think they would send them on to you if they knew where you were. Are there any of your friends with you? I saw Mr. Sivells name among the missing too. Several people have asked me about you. I saw J Phillips last week & he seemed very anxious about you, he had heard that you were wounded as well as missing, but we only saw that you were missing. J Phillips seemed a little hurt that you had not written to him since you left here, but I told him I would let him know as soon as I heard from you. I wrote to your mother a month or two back but haven't heard from her since, I guess she hasn't the heart to write letters, poor soul, she must feel lonely! Did Kitty go to live with your Aunt? I only stayed at Tacoma three weeks as it was too hard a place for me, it nearly finished Louie & I off for good. Let me know if you would be allowed to receive tobacco or anything when you write & don't forget to ask for anything you need we will try to let you have it. Now dear I must close as I believe I'm only allowed to write two papers. Glad to say we are all well & more that pleased to know that you are safe. I feel more contented now I've heard from you -hope to get a letter soon. Good night & God bless you dear, Tons of love & Kisses from XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Many thanks for the money order rec'd O.K. on Sat. Now just received your second card. Sorry your knee is so painful dear but hope it will soon be alright again. Heaps of love from Kate. June 8th.

P.S Is there any limit to the number of letters you may receive?
