dc.description.transcriptionFt. Worth March 12, 1943 My dear Mr. Carter - Ever since hearing the first report yesterday about your son, you have been very much on my mind, and I don't want to leave Ft. Worth without telling you how much I've been thinking of you the past twenty four hours. Amon, Jr. will, undoubtedly, turn up before long - as a prisoner of war, or after having lost communication with his outfit, but I pray that such good news will soon follow the shocking advice of yesterday. All of us in the New York office, just like your thousands of friends all over the country, will be with you in spirit, confident that everything is going to be all right. Sincerely yours - Willis G. Lipscomb
