Bloomington, Indiana, Jan. 2, 1919.
If I never receive an answer to this letter then I shall know that you disapprove of me and such intimate terms that I dare use when far away. Perhaps you know the reason for that. It is natural for young men to be sort of optimistic in their companionship with those who are the attraction of the human race. Of course you understand what I mean and at the same time not taking too serious a judgement of anything. I hardly know how to talk or express my thoughts to a Sunday School Teacher. Really I look upon you with awe and amazement in that respect and may perhaps do likewise in other ways also. And all "affairs" with me are personal because of the respect and courtesy due you. I am writing under different circumstances than I ever wrote to you before. Ha! And I hope you are appreciating the unknown for you are somewhat a mystery yourself. Hoping to hear from you soon.
