My Dear Joan,

We was[sic] delighted to get your telegram last Monday, 6 P.M. & to know Bob was safe. It lifted the cloud somewhat, as we had prayed for Bob & also yourself, all the time & shall continue to do likewise. You was[sic] never out of our thoughts since we returned from our holiday. I should have wrote you earlier.
