dc.description.transcriptionMar 13, 1943 Dear Mr. Carter- Your many friends are deeply concerned over the plight of Amon, Jr. To you, I am quite certain, it is a (illegible) hard to take. The affection between the two of you has been an inspiration to those who knew of it. Let me just say, please, that I join you in a fervent prayer to the Almighty that Amon may be safe and unhurt. As the long days come and go I shall be thinking of you. Out of all this hell of war may the day of reunion soon come. Sincerely yours, W. Douglas Hudgins
