dc.description.transcriptionMarch 12, 1943 Dear Amon This is a tough day, have just heard that Amon is reported missing. There's nothing that I can say which will make this a better day, and I am not going to try. There's a fair chance this bright young Texas will turn up yet. God knows. I hope he wil. You do not deserve losing the boy - and I hope you do not. C.R.
