dc.typeDocument
dc.description.transcriptionMy Dear Amon My attention just this minute has been called to a story in the Dallas News to the effect that Amon Jr is missing in Africa. This comes mightily close to me. I might not be able to figure out just why I feel so keenly a great personal loss. Ours has been an unusual sort of friendship: It has stood all the storms of conflicting community interest and has not been affected by the attitude of others. It is this distress of a Dear Friend which (illegible) distresses me. Yours Always Hatton
