? Sweetheart,

Well I had a little time off in Milwaukee so I [?] I had better write to you.  We got here about half past one.  Nothing much doing only I am getting lonesome as hell already for you.  We will get in Sheridan about five or so.  I will write you a letter there.

Love, Ralph

Notes: He is in the Army and headed off to war. They have been married roughly three months, and Mom is eight months pregnant with their eldest child, my sister Bonny. This is a simple postcard with no image.
