Dear sweet Hedda I love you very much and you are in my mind every moment of the day. I'm lucky to have you I desire you now more than every in my life (when I was overseas I desired you as a woman but now, of course, I know you so much better and I have cause to desire you for so much more). From now on not only I'll love you much but I'll court you every day

I'm very lucky to have you

Dear Hedda darling wife
