To Madame Jouatte1

June 15, 1932 Fort Benning, Georgia

Dear Madame Jouatte:

As I am leaving Fort Benning today and going to a new station, I want to tell you of the change. For the next year at least, I will be at Fort Screven, Georgia. This is a garrison near Savannah, on the ocean.

It has been a long time since I have written to you or heard from you, and I will be very much interested in learning how life has treated you the past two years. Everything has gone well with me, and I certainly hope it has with you.

Here in America we are experiencing a great financial depression. I suppose you feel it in France, but I understand that it is not so bad there yet.

With affectionate regards,

Faithfully yours,
