[Written on The Dodge Hotel, Washington, stationery] [Written at top of letter] Sunday Night - Have just talked to you

and feel much better but a letter a day will drive some of the lonliness away. LBJ [September 15, 1934] Saturday afternoon My dear; I’m sure that there is nothing that could be more distracting, disturbing and estranging to me than a continued evidence of indifference upon your part. Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and today Saturday and no sentiments of affection nor expressions of love. Very likely time will make the picture brighter for me but I feel terribly blue this afternoon. [2] Tomorrow I plan to call you. Tomorrow I plan to tell you again what you have already heard so many times and probably it will be tomorrow that I learn definitely just how and where you stand. Write me that long letter. Tell me just how you feel--give me some reassurance if you can and if you can’t let’s understand each other now. I’m lonesome. I’m disappointed but what of it. Do you care? Lyndon Baines

[Envelope postmarked: Washington, D.C., 9/16/1934, 9:30 PM] [Transcript prepared by LBJ Library staff, January 2013]
