|* Date estimated. The postmark says March 29. Letters from that time typically had a delay of seven or eight days for censorship. However, his mother’s sequential number on the back of the envelope shows this letter arriving before his March 21 letter, so this one is assumed to have been written at least a day before.|
NOW AVAILABLE AS A KINDLE BOOK!
