HUGH QUEEN'S LETTER RESURFACES
found this letter from Hugh Queen written to his wife, Agatha Grace [nee
Durbin] Queen in 1944.in a shop in Tulsa, OK. He would like to
return the original to any Queen family descendants but thus far has
been unable to locate anyone.
Should you know of a family member, please
by Army Examiner 29337, on 14 February 1944 and postmarked a day later,
this six-cent Airmail should have moved faster than a V-Mail letter
Note that Pfc Queen's return address
includes API 813 which was the Belfast, Ireland area.
Feb 13, 44
My Dearest Darling,
How is my one and only today. I hope you are just swell.
I sure would like to see you. But that is just wishful thinking.
Maby [sic, multiple times in the letter, s/b 'Maybe"] it won't be too
long before we can be together again. Sweet I just live for the
day that I can come home to you.
You asked if the people were nice over here. Yes! sweet the
people are grand and they will go out of their way to be nice to you.
But the girls. Wow!! I would give anything just to see one
Especially one that I know. I think you know who she is.
Darling I am not Kidding you can ask any of the guys. The girls
here are horrible. Not that i care for them but I would hate to
die now and not even see one pretty girl Well I guess you think I
am cracking up. And maby I am.
Sweet there really isn't much to write of as I have told you about
all there is to tell. Or mayb may I should say I can or am allowed
to write. There is a loit I would like to tell and a lot of things
know you would enjoy hearing But I had better wait until I see you.
Tell Gonga [sic] that I diden't [sic] get sea-sick. I don't
knew why she haven't heard from me as I have written several times.
I guess a lot of the mail gets lost. I hope not too much of it
Well sweet I must close for tonight. And t will be a couple
of days before I write again.
All My Love,
P.S. I love you.
