dc.description.transcriptionTuesday March 16th Dear Mr. Carter:- Just a few lines to let oyu know how deeply I have felt for you since hearing the news that Amon Jr. was missing in action. Having a son of my own makes me realize fully what this must mean to you, the uncertainty of knowing just what has happened to him I know seems more than you can bear but I feel sure, and know that you will soon have definite news, that he is alive and well, and that is the hope to cling to. Keeping real busy I have found is the only way to lesson our sorrows and I know you will do that. I have never forgotten what a wonderful friend you were to me when I needed just that and I wish there was something I could say or do for you now. If there is, please let me know. Sincerely Edith Monnig 2614 5th Ave Fort Worth, Texas
