‘Waiting to Catch One of Them…So I Can Beat His Head Off’

Babe’s been asking for a cigarette lighter for several letters now.

Dated March 23, 1944; postmarked April 4.

Dear Folks,

I received a couple of letters from you all today and was happy to hear from you.

I don’t think I told you yet that I received three packages a few days ago. I really enjoyed what was in them. I smoked the pipe about twice and now I can’t find it anymore. One of these Italians probably stole it. They steal everything they lay their hands on. I’ve gotten so I hate the site of them and I never give them anything anymore like I used to. As a matter of fact, I’m waiting to catch one of them red-handed so I can beat his head off.

Love & Kisses,
