             In the stress of the incessant fighting men had little

opportunity for noticing the movements of their comrades. After

questioning every reliable witness whom we could find, we have

had reluctantly to give up all hope of hearing anything of

your son's [handwritten] fate, though we never cease to

watch the Prisoner's Lists from Germany for the names of all

the Missing. 

            We desire to offer our deep sympathy to the family and friends. 

                                                 Yours faithfully,   

                                                      R. H. handwritten
