dc.description.transcriptionMarch 12, 1943 Dear Mr. Carter - Until I read the bad news in this morning's New York Times, I did not realize tou had a son in Africa - Louis must have thought I knew, but I didn't. Or else my brief stay at Knox only confused me about names and faces. Please forgive me for my failure to mention him in my last letter, and let me say how much I hope that bad news will changed to good. Sincerely, Gretchen Hightower
