“God bless you for writing me! It was the first clearest word I’d had since the fall of Manila.”
May 30th 1943
My dear Mrs Brewster,
Your letter telling me of a radio message from my son Richard L. Lile who is in an internment camp Santo Tomas in Manila - was the happiest word I’d had for many a day. God bless you for writing me! It was the first clearest word I’d had since the fall of Manila - & I cant tell you the joy & comfort it gave me. I received several letters later, but yours was the first & the happness it gave me was beyond words.
I have been writing him in care of the Red Cross General but have had no assurance that he has received them - now I can look forward to a letter from him soon - With all my heart I thank you for your kindness.
