dc.description.transcriptionGreggton, Texas. 11-23-44. Dear Mr. Carter: - Your letter came this morning and we certainly did appreciate the information it brought and your kindness for writing us, even tho' we had had some information from a Lt Hallis Wood at Offlag 64 that our son was a P.O.W in an air camp. He has been missing since April 30. He has been reported a prisoner on Sept 5th as yet we have not heard from him direct, so the word from your son and Lt Wood has meant a lot to us. There is a Lt Webb at Harmon Hospital Longview (or has been there recently) that left Offlag 64 about Sept 6 that has given Lt Woods family a lot of comfort, they have some nice big pictures of a group, including Amon Jr. I have watched with interest the papers concerning news of your son and it does seem a coincidence that you should get news of our Joe B. (?) and Offlag 64 has been moved, our son is at Stalag Luft 3. Thanking you so much for writing us and trusting that they (?) have to be there very much danger. Sincerely Mrs Joe B. Wilson. Box 478 Greggton, Texas
