Dearest Jeanie.-

Received your most welcome letter to-day, and darling dont over do yourself you should not have walked down town so soon you will be killing yourself than what will I do for loving? I think the baby’s name is ok I have to send his name to the smelter I got a letter from them to-day! By the way where do you go between 6.30 and 9 p.m. that the baby keeps you in? (I dont like that, and so soon too!) I think I’ll take my leave around the 1st of September and come home its one hell of a trip but it will certainly be worth it. (if I can finance it.) Glad to hear you havent lost much weight beef becomes you darling. Yes you had better send Gary’s birth certificate we should be able to get some allowance for him? I suppose Hap and Anne are going strong I’d like to see them. I guess Dennis does have a hard time of it and I suppose he cant see why the baby should sleep most of the time. Films are very scarce here but I‘ll look around and see what I can do you want 120 size dont you? I still haven’t heard from mother or dad I hope they are ok? I went to the show on the station to-nite it was pretty grim Eddie Cantor in “Show Business’ I think we are getting shipped to Goose Bay for a few weeks next week to releive a crew up there. 160 sqdn at Yarmouth passed through here to-day on their way to Tor Bay Nfld. it is nearly as bad as Goose (Labrador)

Well my love I guess I had better turn in and go to bed to get my beauty sleep? I have put on about ten pounds but it is all on my stomach! So goodbye for now

Love and kisses
