Deare st Hubby
Do you love me? Do I love you? Well -Just close your eyes honey. So. Now I’m in your
lap and l’m Just getting comfortable; I have placedone of your arms about my waist and the other is rest-ing lightly upon my knee; I put my arm around yourneck and hold you to me while with my other hand I

want to catch my breath. Just a moment. Once more
our lips meet and this time we both give each our soul -we are no longer ourselves.
Hubby, the devil is in possession of me again or
I’m in its clutches.

see no reason why we should wait until they can come
back to flourish such a nation. Thereupon she said
that’s the point - a child might be born. I laughed
and said ’That’s the natural consequence of true love
and if a child were born I would support it.’ ’And
what would happen to the child while you were out.’’I should probably earn $25.00 a week and so could
have a maid at $30.00 per month for the child if neces-
sary but Mother would be there or I’d be near his Mother.’She thought it was wonderful to feel that way because
