Aug 4. 1940.

Dearest Lauretta & kids,

Well this Aug. 4 is a bit different from Aug. 4, 1919.  I’ve just returned this moment from a day in the field and after 14 hrs of constant commanding & driving men tru mil. excercises, I am pretty well fagged out to-night.

I am again commanding an important group and it looks like I am a success.  If not they are surely putting me tru the paces.

Did you get my cable of the 3rd of August.

I am now closing this letter as it’s getting late and I have to be up at 3.00 AM for more action.

Thinking of you a lot.

Lots of love
