"There must be something wrong with my line."The letter reads:
||MOST EDUCATION IS EXPENSIVE--but the Fighting Forces got both education
and satisfaction at little cost when they came to us for porcelain electrical
equipment. No matter what item is required, KNOX is able to supply
just the right material to do the job. We're doing our bit in helping
take the Axis for a "buggy ride."
Spose you had thumb fun gettin home from your buggy ride, hun? Thats a pun, Penunia. Ha, ha. Aint i a card though? Anyhow it serves you right for going out sewing wild oats when you should be home hittin the hay.
Naw, i didn't want no dog, Penunia. That Post-Examiner i wanted you to buy for me is a newspaper. Besides i had a chance to get me a dog here but i didn't like the looks of his coat. His pants either.
Who's been spreadin dirty roomers about me
shootin craps. I wouldn know one if I saw it. You know I'm
too tender hearted for that, Penunia. Those poor little things got
as much right to live as you have. Besides I'm a vegetarian.
Love & kisses,
