30 May 1945
Dear Horace, I'm proud of you son, even though I am not your true father, I see you as my true son. Going off to fight for your country, to give your mom and me a better life, we are thankful for this. Your mom has missed you dearly, your cousins ask everyday how you're doing, and everyday I try telling them that you are safe, and out of harms way. Receiving this letter from you makes me believe that the end of the war is here, and that you are to return home.
Reading this letter scares me, to know at first hand the rumors are true about Hitler's plans, and what the Nazi's have done. Personally I am not sorry for the outcome of the officers, and that fate ended Hitler's rule, hopefully brining peace to the people; one day for the Jews to rise to their formal glory, making an historical comeback, to covering Hitler's tracks, and all the evil he has put upon humanity.
P.S. Hope that you will be home soon to live on with your life, to forever enhance the American people, and all that is good in this life.
-Your Father, Lou
