Sunday Eve Feb 9
(Postmarked Feb 10, 1919)
My dear Myron:-
Do you know I’m beginning to believe you will be home soon? Last week’s paper said that ALL of the 370th and part of the 369th of the 93rd Division were to arrive between the 10th and the 14th — that means this week. And if they are sending PART of the 93rd, I’m sure they ought to send your regiment soon. O boy! Won’t it be great to have you home again?
They tell me that Kenneth Stillman is discharged and at home. Sid Moulton — Ada’s big brother — is in the U.S.A. – and still they come. Well I’m glad to hear of each one that comes for I know just how their people feel.
It has been a beautiful day and, as my cold is quite a little better, Ransom told me he’d take me over to Ed’s for a little while after dinner. Of course I jumped at the chance so we took the car and skipped over for an hour or two. I haven’t been out before since the middle of January and I really was surprised. The roads are almost as good as they are in summer — actually dusty. The air is rather frosty but not much like it was in February of last year. Ed was saying that according to his diary it was around 26 degrees below zero last year at this time. Well I don’t mind missing the cold weather and the weather lately has been almost ideal.
We were all pleased to get your letter last week but best of all was to know that you were in Brest and PERHAPS soon to be on your way home. And I’m so glad you got your Christmas box.
Marion and Anna were over to Ed’s. They both look rather thin and show the effects of having the Flu. Ed and Bessie came out of it VERY luckily.
Well I must write another letter so guess I’d better close this one for now. I feel as though perhaps you would never receive the letters we write now.
Think of us all until you come home.
