Now, don’t start thinking our schedule has changed. It hasn’t. We only stay 8 hours in Bahia, then, on to Rio and, I hope, a few letters from you. The first stretch of each voyage, I think must be the hardest part. After having been in each others arms, to have to wait about 12 days to read a letter from your love is a little rough.
Darling, I have reserved a room for you and Choppy for 5 days, starting on the night of Sunday August 22nd. The Henry Hudson Hotel on W57th street. You’ll like the hotel. It’s only a few blocks from the West side raised highway, so I can get from the hotel down to the ship in no time.
Also, one of the ass’t. managers there used to be Deck Dept. Yeoman on the “Brazil”. I stopped in to see him on my way to the ship after I landed at La Guardia Field.
FLASH!!! Do you know that you only have 280 mornings before you have to start getting out of a nice, cozy, warm bed to cook breakfast for me? It’s a long wait my love, but, we will manage somehow, and won’t we be happy then! I have to close now.
Dearest Cyclone, loving and true,
love me always, as I love you.
