23/8/'43.

My dear Mrs. Madgett,
Words are so futile at a time like this, but I felt I wanted you to know that my thoughts are with you.
I'm so awfully glad I met Hedley, in fact was proud to meet him. I have no children & am therefore so very grateful

[page break]

to you "Mothers & Boys" who are doing the job for us.
But, dear, don't give up hope. There are so many cases where parents have heard from their sons after quite a long interval. So much could have happened. There will be many of us who will hope & pray with you.
My sincere & loving thoughts & wishes,

Yours very sincerely,
O.W. Burnard.
