Book inscription: An early morning's journey into daybreak

My Darling Yvette - "Fairest of the Fair"

Darling — It seems incredible that only yesterday I was with you and was, at last, the son of man. And a true God carved from crubling [sic] sandstone in they image: Nuff said on that subject.

So! I'm a little [illegible] God, am I? Well I'll show you right away. Pronto, if nothing else

What will this page ever look like in the brilliant sun of the day.


It's 6:36½

Darling -

I feel splendid, absolutely & without a doubt, fitter than I've ever felt before. Even if I am in a mad house, living as you in your silly dress
