Bush was a U.S. Navy pilot at the time of the writing, during World War II. It's in blue ink on Navy stationery and begins: "My darling Bar."
“I love you, precious, with all my heart and to know that you love me means my life. How often I have thought about the immeasurable joy that will be ours someday. How lucky our children will be to have a mother like you,” the letter read.
I've written dozens of love letters in my life. Are any of them still out there? Maybe, maybe not. I've kept a few, although the best one ever written to me - which might even be worth a few bucks these days (I won't say why) - I recall disposing of upon getting married. Not sure why that one stuck out more than any of the others. There is one pictured here, haphazardly written on a New Haven street on the very day that I met the writer.
Oh, and I once took a love letter I wrote back from the young lady I had given it to. But that's another story for another day.
Do you still have one tucked away in a drawer? Post your screenshot!
