February 17, 1945
Dear Mrs. Emery:
In the newspaper day before yesterday I noticed your husband's name in the list of men wounded in the European area. I will appreciate it very much if you will let me know how seriously he was wounded, and his correct address at present.
Because your husband was an employee of the Louisville Cement Corporation here at Speed before entering the service, his name is on our mailing list to receive my monthly letter which goes to all the service men from this community along with copies of the SPEEDOMETER, our bi-weekly Company paper. I have been writing to your husband since February, 1943, but have never heard from him.
We will be much interested in hearing about your husband's condition, and his present whereabouts.
