I am glad you wrote to Dave H. I have spoken with Ceil just once since her marriage and will get in touch with her again. As for living independent from you darling If this weren't a messy war I should say this separation has had some interesting aspects. I have learned that I can live independently but only because you are always there and I have discovered that although we were as close as two people could possibly be I was an independent individual with freedom as to thinking (we disagree amicably for the most part on some points) and freedom of action and likes and dislikes I could go where and when I wished (tho I wished most often to be with you) and I could bring home almost anybody without fear of censure (and down it I did too). There I go again saying it in another way my sweet we sure have had a fine relationship.
