'Sleep well, my love'

The website Letters of Note has just published the text of a love letter from American World War II veteran Brian Keith to Dave, a fellow soldier he met and fell in love with in 1943 while stationed in North Africa, on the occasion of their anniversary. It's an almost lyrical letter, with a sad, bitter-sweet ending.

The original letter is apparently held in the US Library of Congress.
