Letter 21, from Rosie

Ok, dear readers. Here it is. It's THE letter. Books are written in this letter. I'm not going to lie: this letter is the reason I started this blog. If you read none of the other letters, read this one. It has everything in it -- lies, truth, love, desperation, selfishness, and so much more. This letter may be the human condition. And if you read it like a monologue in an old movie, the effect is more dramatic!

Well Sal I finally got up enough guts to write you and tell the truth about myself.

Hon I'm no good. I have been lying to you in every letter I wrote, giving you different reasons of why I haven't been writing –
The truth is I haven't had time because I have had to much to do during the day to get myself ready to go out at night, on dates with my girlfriends and going in town to pick up. Get that pick up sailors. And all the time I was writing to you and telling you I was staying in the house nights. Sal ever since you left I have been out every night with a different guy. I been going out with gangs to night clubs, drinking, smoking, telling every guy how much we love them.

Yes I'm that sweet little girl from Boston. Thats what they all think I am. A kid thats out only tonight, to be a queen. But actually Sal I'm a terror a no good terror. Sal I never did anything to be ashamed of yet, but if I don't settle down and keep away from these girls I go with I'll be completely no good.
Hon I never trough myself down, to any guy, I should say I don't know why I am telling you. But I won't because I do know why, Because honey it took me up until last night to realize I was really in love with you. Honey you've got to help me. I don't want to do bad and go wrong. That's the last thing in the world I want to happen to me.

Sal I know what your going to write, How am I going to help you away out here in Washington. Honey write me every day and I'll write you the same give me something to do to keep me in the house.

Sal I meant it when I said I love you. Honey I really do believe me or I wouldn't have told you all this. Baby your the only one that can advise me and set me right. Hon if you love me you'll write me every day and advise me on what to do to keep my self busy until you come home.

Well honey now I have told you all and I feel like a million dollars , free as a bird.

So honey please write soon,
I love
you, miss
you, and I'm
dying to hear from

Please excuse the spelling and writing. I'm so upset from crying and nerved up over the things I did I'm just not myself and I won't be until I hear from you.


p.s. Please love me and forgive me.

Poor Rosie! She sure has flare. What's your favorite quote from this letter?

Letter 20, from Rosie

[no envelope, no date]

Hi Honey
I'm sorry for not writing sooner but I've been quite busy as my mother has been ill, and I have been staying with her. And my house work + family have kept me pretty busy, I haven't even had time to get dressed and go out.

Well honey I'm all right now and can go back to work anytime I get ready, but I have intentions of staying home for a couple of months and collect social security.

Gee Honey there isn't anything to say because I haven't been out any place to tell you about.
Hon I'll have to send you Joe's address in my next letter because it is up in my aunts house, so by the time I receive a letter from you I ought to be back there, O'K' Baby? It will have to be.

I received a bottle of Chanel perfume from one of my lover's who hasn't forgotten me on Valintines Day, He says when he gets home its going to be him and I for keeps, What have you got to say about that? I say he's crazy. I'am right an't I?

Oh honey do I miss you if you only knew. I know you thing I'm giving you a line but I'm not Sal I never knew how to be true until I met you, but I do now.
Well honey I was going too write you a comical poem but I am so tired I have all I can do too keep my eyes open so I'll save it for later.

So Honey till I hear from you
I remain Yours Until Hell
Freezes Over

p.s. Don't write anything out of the way in your letters, like having babys because my girl friends my like to read your letters if there here.
