dc.description.transcriptionSan Antonio Tex. Feb. 12-43 Dear Mr. Carter, We share your anxiety and anguish at the message telling of Amon Jr. missing. I am staunch in my belief that he is well and safe and that you will hear from him in the near future. We must have the courage and fortitude to live thru these dark days since better days are coming and it will be Amon Jr. who will be telling you stories of adventure and you who will be listening to him. Believe me he can take this being a prisoner and he has many friends with him, far better than you it behooves you now more than ever to take the best care of your health so the Amon Jr. will have no worry onthat score when he returns. Please come and spend a week end with us or as long as you care to stay, we can be mutually helpful I know. We will lot you know whatever we hear from Sidney - our prayers for the safety of our sons will be heard. Our best love to you, Elizabeth H. Wiedermann
