Tuesday night

14 Sept. 43.

Dearest Jean:

There is a very empty feeling in my heart tonight and my thoughts refuse to travel with my body - but are back with you - I shall be glad when tomorrow comes because then I will know that you are back in our own little home with Mary - and in that sense with the best part of me. I suppose I should be thinking about what I should do in Ottawa and later - but its no win - I can't keep my mind here with me it is back with you. Its black out - got dark very quickly after the train pulled out and the blackness out the windows seems to increase the unreality that I am on my way once more. It will be better for us both when the daylight tomorrow forces us to give attention to our actual movements and in that way help us to feel less acutely that we are apart once again - apart physically but never apart in spirit and love dear.

Find I cant even read so am going to turn in and think about you in the dear old privacy of bed till sleep performs her magic. Remember what we said about bed the other night. It's a wonderful retreat!
Will post this tomorrow a.m. possibly at Revelstoke, and it should get back to you quickly.

It was a wonderful reunion and although it brought the pain of parting a second time - it was divinely sweet and gratifying.

God bless you dear and give Mary a kiss from her funny old Popsy.

Love -
