dc.titleLetter re: Amon Carter, Jr.
dc.description.transcriptionSunday. My dear Amon, I have thought of you so much the last few weeks,- hoped I would see you to tell you what hope and love there is in my heart for you. It does seem that for every joy in life, there is cast a shadow, which makes this shadow so large, because of the joy and pride you and your friends have had in this grand young Amon. But know we are thinking and praying with you and for you, our own dear friend- Fondly yours Aunt Martha and Robert.
