    Dear Luise!

    Heartfelt thanks for your letter of 13/5, which I got today. I am glad to hear that you are still well. I can say the same thing for me.

    I could have written in my last letter that I have doubts about your betrothal, but I did not want to disappoint you. I had let an older comrade read the letter and he told me right away: 'And you believe that?' Ah, well, even if it had been that way, I could not have done anything about it anyway.

    I wrote you once that I got transferred to the tank branch, and that is were I am now, at the workshop. We are in the South of France, a marvelous spot. Today, we had over 30 heat again. As you can imagine, I go swimming every day. As for the uniform: It's a black one. I could have sent you a picture, but as long as I don't have a large one of you, I won't send you one.

    That's it for today.

    Very heartfelt greetings from
    Your Helmut

    Adam, and I, in turn, thank you for being a new member WITH MANNERS! What a refreshing change...

    I hope that you will find the forum to be a consistently helpful and friendly place - there are MANY such members here.



    p.s. HPL is indeed a true asset - WRF simply would not be the same without him.
