Dear Mrs. Farrar:

The Atlanta Chapter of the American Red Cross learns with regret through the casualty list of the newspaper that your son Sergeant George Farrar has been reported missing.

We join your many friends in extending our sympathy to you and hope that the War Department will soon be able to send you some reassuring news regarding his safety.

During these months of anxiety, we feel sure that you are comforted by a feeling of pride in knowing that your son has rendered a wonderful service to his country.
