Hello Sweetheart, [Notice that they address letters to each other in the same fashion].
How's my Honey tonight? Well and happy I hope. It was good to get your letter this morning. It seemed a little cheerier than any you have written lately and it made me feel you were perhaps just a little happier. Brave up Sweetheart. You are going to be the happiest man in the world before the year is out or I'll know the reason why. [Wedding coming up??? Wait and see.]
Listen goofy, as a mathematician, you are all wet. Please consult your train information again. Why must you leave Digby Monday morning when your train doesn't leave St. John for Toronto until after 6 o'clock Tuesday night? Surely Tuesday morning would be alright and that would give you another day at home. Figure it out for yourself and see if I'm not right. You know Honey, I am just as thrilled as you are, looking forward to going to Digby, as much as if I were going along too. I am awfully glad for you and I hope it will make you mighty happy.
Come on over tomorrow night if you can Honey, but don't feel too downhearted if you can't. I'll be coming over next Wednesday anyway, and I'll go to the station with you Thursday morning and see you off. If you see me appear from under the seat at Montreal, don't send me back with you? I'll be awful good and I promise not to bark when the conductor takes your ticket.
Dad is feeling just about the same. He is getting along better up at the shop, but he is very crabby. I think he is more mad at himself than anyone else. The doctor told Wilson last Sunday that he would never be any better. He gets very tired but he seems better than a couple of months ago. He eats well and sleeps well so that will help him a lot, and if he takes care of himself he will likely live for years.
You ought to hear the radio. An organ is playing "Because". I love that piece. It makes me feel nice all over. Come here and give me a kiss.
Say, I just loved the toast this morning. Even the colour was grand. The colour was alright Honey. There is not much difference between brown and black. Besides you can always find the brown underneath the black! [Alas, she burned the toast.]
Gosh I have been tearing around all day but have accomplished very little. I made an orange cake this morning and it didn't turn out too badly. I mended my plaid dress and washed it but still have to iron it. I just got started at clean up the house when Mother phoned and asked me to meet her uptown. I dropt everything and got ready. It took me nearly an hour to choose patterns for my dresses and another hour to choose materials for them. Dear oh dear! Now I have gone and spent all the money I had for my hat, shoes, stockings and gloves. Don't die of shock if you see me parading up the aisle in my bare feet. I'se warning you ahead of time. Ha, ha, I can just see your face. Would your ears be red! I bet you would pick me up and make me put my feet in your pockets. Better not leave any loose change in them. Those 'tootsies' of mine have 'taking' ways! Excuse me, I didn't mean to tickle you! That little toe of mine was wiggling a little, sort of investigating! [Ah ha! Just what is she investigating in that pocket?]
Tell Margaret that all is well at home. Baby Margaret has been ill but is alright now. You may also tell her that Bob Dodds is home, but, for how long, I don't know.
Well Sweetheart, will I see you tomorrow or won't I? It seems ages since we were together. It is a long time too. Do whatever you think is best.
Gad, if I had known you did not have a hot plate long ago certainly would have sent you one. Whatever have you been doing for breakfast? No wonder you have been sick you brat. Come over here and I'll take a bit out of your ear! Never mind, I'll forgive you, and kiss it instead. [Obviously, Jones' house furnishings were quite incomplete. He was actually cooking his breakfast in the fireplace.]
Heaps of love Darling. I'm thinking of you every minute and am looking forward to seeing you very soon. Don't work too hard. We will have lots of time to fix everything up. Now be a good boy and I'll love you to death.
Heaps of hugs and kisses
