My Darling:--
The fact that the divorce has been granted—your wire came yesterday—seems quite unrelated to you and me.  I feel you to be as inseparable from me as ever.  I love you as regardless of how I have at times behaved.  I always have, and always will.  I miss you as you probably miss me.  And I will want never to change this please—even to moving an ornament from where you put it—unless it is of practical necessity.  And then I’ll act as though for you, thinking only of how you would have it be.  Well, my darling, you’ll see when you come back.
Please always keep me in your heart without change.  Knowing that I want it to be so will help.  And it will help me a lot in my life to know that you do.  Just as before, see me when you can, write to me when you will, and keep on loving me.  You know we are terribly close.  Know, always when the realization of that comes to you, that it is so with me.  Please help me keep you and me from ever drifting the least bit apart.  Oh my darling, I love you so!
Yours,
Rockwell
