12/28/22 The Most Lonesome Place

Houston, Texas

Dec 28, 1922

My Dearest Florence,

Gee, this is the most lonesome place I have seen in several days. I am looking forth to Sunday night with great anxiety. You know it drives the blues away and gives me inspiration when I go out to see you. A little enjoyment of that kind (the kind you show me) does a great deal to loosen up a person’s head after long thinking. You know, just similar to dissolving clods with water to make mud pies.

The stationery that the new year greeting is on is very cute. Some trick to that stationery, eh?

I am so glad that you liked the pin so much. I am sure you appreciate it, the way you expressed it is fully convincing.

I can think of the happy days (tonite) when you came out to see me in the afternoons. Somehow I cannot keep the blues back I am looking forward to see you some afternoon again when school is in full swing.

Florence, words cannot express how I enjoyed those afternoons. If you are ever away from home in school, then I am sure you realize how things go at times. When the blues come, you may not be able to see until then.

Well old dear, I will have to say good night for this time.

As ever,


PS. Got my grades today. Came out OK. Sure was some relief, too.
