dearest bobby

click to see image large

the letter came from a large batch I bought at a flea market.
It always makes me a little sad, a life ending up in a bin, photographs torn out of albums.
I do really enjoy reading them, trying to glean a story (bobby had gone to what I presume was a summer camp, and had LOTS of letters from different girls.)

I love the use of the "H" for the perky "Hello There!", the plaintive nature of the question, and the eccentric and arbitrary use of the comma.

"Hello There!"
Dearest Bobby...
have your feelings, toward me, changed yet?
You know darn well bobby that our likings are equal

I love that last line..
