This letter will confirm my telephone conversation with you on Thursday. We would like very much to have another group of ten or twelve men from the Hospital as our guests here in Speed for the weekend of February 5th and 6th.
You will recall the previous arrangements--which were entirely satisfactory to us--were for your Hospital conveyance to bring the fellows to the USO Club in Jeffersonville where we met them at 5:30 on Saturday afternoon. We returned them to the USO at 6:30 on Sunday night where they were picked up by your bus.
The men that came out before were such fine fellows and they all seemed to enjoy the weekend very much. I have visited them at the Hospital twice and they have all expressed the hope that other groups from the Hospital can come to Speed.
I would like to take this opportunity to express through you to Major Braden the high regard all of the fellows have for him as a surgeon and as a man. Each one to whom I talked about the Hospital expressed the greatest admiration for him. I do not know the Major but thought he should know the high regard the men have for him.
If possible, please let me know by Wednesday if you can arrange for the boys to come here next weekend.
Yours very truly,
Jesse G. Dorsey
