Ivan Milat’s letter to his girlfriend, Chalinder Hughes, from Long Bay Jail. The spelling mistakes are his.
THOUGHT ABOUT YOU FOR DAY’S
My dearist Chalinda,
Hi, my love another week away from you. I find it hard not to think of you most of the time, that isnt a problem I find it give’s me some feeling of being normal, it is knowing how you are coping is my worry… Just try and look after yourself. I think your job will help it seem’s to be a lot more demanding than the old one. Thank you for turning up on Sunday you looked so nice I would have loved to just sit with you all day and hold you very tight. I know I did talk a lot with Shirley but my love it was about some pressing matter’s which she did sort out. Perhap’s we will let Wendy be the bridesmaid? I sometime’s forget about other people whom will look after you I hope they do. Don’t you have breakfast at home your letter was saying about you on the train and your stomach saying it is breakfast time I presume you never had enough time on that day… things are rolling allong here the time goe’s very quick I tend to do things that keep me busy sometimes I just listen to other people they all have problem’s I can’t help them anyway but it seem’s to make them a bit happier.
Anyway my love stay well and healthy and look out for things
All my love, Ivan xxxxxxx
PS I won’t forget the rose’s.
