Pack Away Some Memories (Ruth)

1944-02-28 (REYM)Letter transcription:

Lieut. R.S. Yegerlehner, U.S.N.R.
U.S.N. Base Hosp. #4
Navy 133
F.P.O. SAN FRANCISCO CALIF.

Mrs. Earl Mutchler
Wilmington
Illinois
Feb. 28, 1944

Dear Jake, Am in the letter writing business this afternoon. It seems that I owe everybody an answer, and by the way I haven’t heard from you for quite some time. Mom and Gladys are always so good to relay the news on to us however. Suppose you are very busy. Everyone here seems to be too. Earl is working such long hours. You know he never was very “fat” and he isn’t getting any fatter. Now me for instance, my case is a different story. We have had some nice spring days already but imagine we will have more wintry ones. Imagine the climate where you are now is very enjoyable. Had letters from Mom & Gladys last week, they were all well. From Gladys’ letters I take it that David must be growing into quite a boy. She says he keeps them busy. Those snappy black eyes of his are really meant for business, so much to see & do. Here’s hoping you are well & able to enjoy your surroundings, pack away a lot of memories so we can sit at your feet & listen when you come home.

Love Ruth

    “You know he never was very “fat” and he isn’t getting any fatter. Now me for instance, my case is a different story.” Earl always was thin as a rail, and when I knew him, he was always bend, wobbly, frail.

    “David must be growing into quite a boy. She says he keeps them busy. Those snappy black eyes of his are really meant for business, so much to see & do.” Hmmmm, brown eyes, I believe. 🙂

    “…so we can sit at your feet & listen when you come home.” Generally speaking, I don’t think the WWII veterans did much of that.
