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
