General MacArthur Speech On Liberation Of The Philippines

General MacArthur Speech On Liberation Of The Philippines

“Dear Jean & Jerry,

I received your letter of Feb. 26th the day after I wrote you last. Thanks for the nice picture you sent. I think you both look very well.

Milly sent me two pictures- one of their home in Georgia and one of Lorne and Susan standing by a snowman he had built for her. It was taken in Robbinsdale while he was there.

It has been raining here all this week- haven’t seen the sun hardly at all. You asked about hitch-hiking here. There are plenty of vehicles on the road and most everyone will give a person a ride. I haven’t seen Woody C . for a couple of weeks. He is a field artillery man.

Thanks for writing Beany’s letter to me. My latest from him is of Feb. 14th, too, but I expect a letter soon. Mom’s last letter is of March 2nd. Do you think she will come back to Mpls. soon. She writes as if she will but Milly and Lorne want her to stay there, she says.

I heard Gen. MacArthur’s speech from Manila, too, Jerry. The situation is sure a lot different now than it was around three years ago.

It’s sure too bad about Max Schlieman. I imagine you heard that he was killed in Belgium.

I’ll close for now wishing you a Happy Easter.
