To Mrs. LeGrand A. Diller
December 23,  [Washington, D.C.]
Dear Mrs. Diller,
In Port Moresby the other day I had long conversations with Colonel Diller and told him I would carry home his Christmas greetings. He looks well, as a matter of fact there is very little change from my recollection of him at Benning. I am sorry he cannot be with you for the holidays, but he is doing an important and very fine job for General MacArthur.1
Molly is at our country place at Leesburg and I shall see her probably tomorrow and tell her that I saw Diller.
