Dear Mrs. Fitzgerald,
This is meant to tell you how deeply my husband and I feel for you since we heard that your son is missing, - we know what these days of anxiety and doubt will mean to you.
Do know with what understanding and sympathy we are both thinking of you.
I had so hoped that I could write to you in my own hand, but, alas, the pressure of work here continues so great, that I know you will understand and forgive a dictated note.
Yours very sincerely,
(Alice Tricurt Massey)
