My dear Madgett.
While in town todayon a visit during leave, I heard that your son is “reported missing”, and I would like to convey to you and your wife my sincere sympathy in the deep anxiety you must be experiencing. I do most fervently hope you will soon hear good news that he is safe.
I also understand that he has just been awarded the D.F.M. and it is extra hard that at a time which should be full of happiness and rejoicing, is so full of anxiety.
Please do not worry about answering this letter.
With kind regards.
Yours sincerely.
C. P. Wonghley
