dc.description.transcriptionMarch 12, 1943. Dear Mr Carter, Bob & I have a little boy fine. No matter what he does our one thought it to protect him from heartache & hurts. When I read today's paper about your son my heart stopped a beat. Even though he is a grown man your one thought is to protect him & keep him over the humps he is bound to meet. This, I know, is the first time in your life you are helpless & how my heart aches for you. There are no words or deeds that can console you. I know there would not be for me. The only thing you can do is rely on God to keep him & you through this. As I look at my little boy sleeping so sweet in his bed tonight I think of you & how much it would mean to you to walk in your son's room & see him asleep so trusting & unafraid. If for no other reason, your loving thoughtfulness of others is bringing us close tonight. I with there was one thing I could do or say to help you through the days of worry. My thoughs & prayers are with you. Sincerely Helen Chrisp. Mrs. Robb Chrisp 2115 Kavanaugh Bend Little Rock Ark.
