dc.description.transcriptionApril 25, 1944 Dear Dad, Over 100 new officers arrived two days ago. They were captured in February and have been in other camps but are now here. Here are the ones from Texas: Lt. James Tatum Wife Mrs. JB Tatum, 1415 Crocker St, Houston, Lt. John R Martin, Mother Mrs. Louise Martin, Box 174 Eagle Pass, Capt. Charles M Wilkinson Jr, Mother Mrs. CM Wilkinson, Menard, Lt Thatcher Wallentine, Mother Mrs. JW Valentine, Gonzales, Lt John A Snatsell, Wife Mrs. JA Stansell, Olden Lt Loyd Taylor Aunt Mrs. WB Sims, Box 172, WIlls Points, Lt James Grandberry, Mother, Mrs. Goad Granbury, 212 NW 5th Ave, Mineral Wells, and Capt. Hugo Fieldschmidy, Dallas, Notify, Dr. ML Friedman 1703 Live Oak Street. These officers are all fine and have already written home but want you to let their folks know where they are. Have had 40 of your letters. Had three from Jeans last week, the January parcel should arrive soon, sure hope so because I can really use the food. Every 8 officers here have their own small garden. We have garlic, onions, radishes, lettuce, and flowers in ours. It's all we have but it will fill us up a little. Please thank Mr. Shuman and the WE Smith's for their letters. Give everyone else my love. We are all fine and are really glad the winter is over am sure I will gain some weight. Lots of love, Amon Jr.
