Dear John Letter #1 January 15,1969
Got your letter and picture. You have lost weight! Yes, your letter was very descriptive.
Paul called last week (Wed. nite) and said he was coming in Thur. So fine. We were going to go to dinner. He called about 11:00 Thur. and said his plane was late. So I didn’t get a chance to see him. He said he wrote you and your friend, Soloman, was supposed to mail the letter. Did you get it? He really wants you to write and wonders why you haven’t. Could you please send me his address? I have received two tickets that he got the day I lent him the car to go w/ his kids.
There is a reason why I haven’t written much, Randy. I have met someone now who is very important to me. Before you left, I think you realized that things weren’t going very well for us. I don’t want you to think that just because you’re not here, “that its out of sight, out of mind.” After we started arguing so much, I really couldn’t take it. And I feel that we really weren’t meant for each other.
School and everything else here is fine. Jill is pregnant and both she and Jerry are all excited about it.
Saw two more good movies – “Elvira Madigan” and “Two of Us.” I’ve become a real show fiend.
Well, we have a new Pres. Yea! for the U.S.A.
Got to hit the sack.
