Letters from Grandpa 6 June 1916

Southern Hotel
Bakersfield, Calif.

Miss Allene S. Kelley,

Dearest Mine: -

It's in my system and just keeps crying out and I can't go to bed till I tell you again, I love you. God only knows how much dear and how hard  I'm going to try to make your future one one [sic] unbroken period of happiness -- and I feel so good, -- I mean big, - proud, - elated, - happy, - jubilant, ---- oh I don't know, dearest, what it is!! I'm here and you're there and I'm going further away and I guess I'm crazy, that's all, so I'd better stop.

Always yours,


Bakersfield, Calif.
June 6, 1916

P. S. Dr. Whitesides "likes" you dear and I --- well haven't I told you I love you?
