Here’s Charles Eames’ marriage proposal letter to Ray. This is what it says:
“Dear Miss Kaiser,
I am 34 (almost) years old, singel (again) and broke. I love you very much and would like to marry you very very soon.* I cannot promise to support us very well. — but if given the chance I’ll shure in hell try –
*soon means very soon.
What is the size of this finger??
as soon as I get to that hospital I will write “neams” well little ones.
