Description

This is a PDF of a letter from the Special Collections section of the University of Memphis Library. Merrill Dan, a lieutenant in the U.S. Military, writes a letter to his new wife, Hope Dan, a college student at the University of Wisconsin. They were both natives of Memphis, Tennessee. This letter is typed by Dan and is on very thin almost see through paper. In this letter he repeatedly says how much he loves Hope and he uses all sorts of name for her. He uses sweet heart, darling and love. He speaks of being very busy and the fact that he can barely write back to her or anyone else who has been writing to him.
