Love letter proposal from Charles Eames to Ray

Dear Miss Kaiser,
I am 34 (almost) years old, singel (again) and broke. I love your 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 will 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 "reams" well little ones.
love xxxxxxxxx

Alors professeur de design industriel à l'Académie des Arts de Cranbrook dans le Michigan, 
Charles Eames rencontre Ray Kaiser, étudiante en peinture.
Trois ans plus tard, en 1941, il la demandera en mariage.
Biensûr, Ray répondra "oui" :)
