Stan Laurel Timeline - 1938



My Dearest Vera [Ivanova Shuvalova],
    Here are the pictures I took - Didn't they turn out good! I think you will like the house Dear and am sure you will be very comfortable there. We start to move in on Sunday. Sonya called me a couple of times last night. She is working today at the Studio. I may have to work this afternoon and again on Friday. I hope you are having a good rest Dear and enjoying yourself with Bobby. I went to bed right after I talked to you last night and had a swell sleep - didn't wake up till 8:30 this a.m. I do miss you my Baby and am eager to see you again. It won't be long now so don't get lonely Darling - have a real good time and be happy like I want you to be. I will call you this evening, Dear, as soon as I get back home. Bye bye my Sweetheart. I love you more and more each day and am thinking of you always and now that I have Julius to drive I don't have to worry about red lights or what road I have to take!!
    Fondest Love Ever My Vera.
                Your affectionate Husband.
