One letter from June Walter to Leonard Eugene Graeff dated October 21, 1943. June writes that she is glad to hear from Leonard and that he seems to be doing "swell", she encourages him to do good in school and study hard. June apologizes for the way she is writing, but she is picking up Southern turns of phrase from all the Southern offices stationed at "The Gap Lane." She went out to "Springers" the other night and lists some of the songs in the "Jingle Box." June compliments Leonard again on the photo he sent her. She also sympathizes with him on how many haircuts he has to get. She complains about the paper she wrote on and says she can't get any other paper until she gets her allotment from the government. On the back of the last page are notes from, her coworkers. The notes are from; Betty Schultz, telling Leonard she is glad he is doing okay; Hedgy Boat who describes herself as "just another 'Navy' girl like June;" and Betty Joan Canne, who says "Do I like sailors especially tall blond ones. I don't think you fit in June's life. Maybe I could stick you in mine," she also asks if they need any sweethearts in Great Lakes.
