dc.titleLetter re: Amon Carter, Jr.
dc.description.transcriptionSaturday- Dear Uncle Amon, I want you to know that we are thinking of you at all times, sure sorry to hear that Amon Jr is missing but praying that he will return soon. My saying is "After a rain there is always a sunshine." Gene is doing fine, back to work now. I am going Monday to see about having my teeth made, I will be so glad to get them. Bill is doing fine, has had one cold, but is up going again. If there is anything we can do for you be sure and call on us. WE love you and there isn't anything we wouldn't do for you. Wishing you the best of luck. Love, Laura Mae.
