Dear Friend,
I should be very happy to receive your news, you must remember the Postman of the P.P.T. who came to rescue you with his comrades of the Maquis in a little district of Yonne on the fifth of May, 1944, after your forced descent. My two comrades of the car [deleted] h [/deleted] were killed a short time after I myself was wounded in the course of a night operation and I have had no more news of you.
I am now in the ranks of the new French Army and I hope soon to be fighting against the common enemy.
In the hope of receiving your news, I cordially shake your hand.
My kindest regards to Mr. Exp: Corporal Aubert Roland, First half-brigade.
E.M. of the First Battalion.
Auxerre (Yonne).
