Dear Joan,
Thank you so very much for your letter – we were all more than grieved to hear that Bob is missing.
Mac had told us two days previously that he had heard of him as missing over Stuttgart & I didn’t like to write to you without some more definite news.
Your letter sounds hopeful, & I am so thankful for that you are much in our thoughts & have all our sympathy during this difficult time. I do so hope that soon you may have good news. Bob is such a grand Pilot & fine all round airman that I’m sure if its humanly possible to come out on top he most certainly will. We shall wait eagerly to hear again from you.
[page break]
I am in the middle of a real holiday scrum! & seem to be surrounded by boys. I have my nephew Peter staying as well as Jerry & Mick & a school friend of theirs, so with young Paul & the General I have a masculine household varying in ages from 5 months to 82 years. Be sure & let me know if I can do anything about the car for you – we have a spare garage here now as R has sold the A.C. so if the Regent should want it out of the way before you are able to fetch it – be sure & tell them to park it here. We shall look forward to seeing you. I am anxious to show you Paul – who is growing into a fine boy now he was a poor little scrap at first – but is a smiling friendly little creature now.
Again with renewed sympathy
