[After a few days with her boyfriend – and future husband – David – Lorelei writes] D’s parting words more than could have hoped to hear I can hardly believe it’s true that he feels that way after meeting me again. I was so afraid I’d no chance with as he must have the choice of women. Sent him New year’s greeting telegram at 1.56 am. How I wonder what 1945 holds! How long David will be away and whether that which I’ve lived 33 years for is really going to happen this year? If only David is kept safe, that is all I ask. Sometimes, especially when reading about Pacific Sea-Air battles, I am filled with fear, this is cowardly I know, but how else when one is in love? Oh David, David come safely back.
