My dear Mrs. Brewster

I was ill and have been out of the city for five weeks, recuperating, and just returned home this Monday, July 26. What a surprise I got in having your letter, also a number of others awaiting me! I cannot express to you the thrill I experienced on receiving your missive, relaying my son Frank’s Radio-Tokyo message. Worlds fail me--though “words” are inadequate to express to you my appreciation to you for the trouble to which you have gone to get this message to me. It has indeed made me very very happy, as I have not seen my boy for three years nor heard from him since September 1942. I can assure you I shall never forget your kindness and I know if my dear boy could thank you, he would do so most profusely.

This is a marvelous act you have done and certainly a great part in this war effort.

I do hope to be able to meet you someday and personally express to you the happiness you have brought me. If you ever get to Washington, please call me up and give me the opportunity to prove to you my appreciation for the service you have so generously rendered me.

I trust you will understand my delinquency in acknowledging your wonderful message from my boy. May God bless you and keep you in good health, that you may continue this altruistic work that you are doing.

Again, my most profound thanks, and let us hope and pray that these dreadful hostilities will be brought to an end very soon, with honor and dignity, and then we will have our sons--and all the boys back home again.

I wish you would give me the priviledge and honor of calling myself your new friend.

Most gratefully,

(Mrs.) Rena F. Wolfsheimer
