Letters from Roslyn to Walter Felson sent during World War II
Sunday nite
January 9, 1944

Hello dearest: --

I have one of those old sinus headaches and I feel lousy -- if my letter is short, you'll understand why.

Spent the usual Sunday -- at home. While the kids took their naps, Beverlee & Shirley came over to stay with them, and Marian and I went to the Lyric to see Rosalind Russell in "What a Woman", which was amusing but not out of the ordinary. However, it was the first time that I've been out in weeks--so I enjoyed the treat, except one cannot run away from the horrors of war. There were several news reels that gave me the jitters.

We all had supper together and spent the evening together.

Monday am.

Here I am again. I just couldn't write anymore my head ached so badly, I went to bed at 9 30. Feel find and dandy this a.m. Perhaps its because I dreamed of you last night, for a change. Both Judy and I dreamed that our daddy came home. Hope that dream comes true very, very soon. Judy said "I dreamed that daddy came home and he took us for a long ride, and I hugged him and kissed him." You'll get so much loving and kissing when you get home, you'll be overwhelmed. Can't you just see your three girls fighting over you?

Well, shug -- I want to get this in the morning mail. I'll write more tonight. I love you dearly -- I'm beginning to believe the adage "absence makes the heart grow fonder."

I love you! I love you! I love you!
