George Edwin Farrar’s mother, Raleigh Mae, sent her telephone number to the Buslees at their request. They wished to speak to Farrar when he returned home from the war, and wanted to plan a visit to see him.

Dear Mrs. Farrar;
Many thanks for your letter with your telephone number and to learn that you expected George to reach a spot so near to Atlanta must have been very comforting word to you.
We have just received a letter from Miss Marbach and from it we understand that you have been in touch with her and the Peluso family. It does seem very strange that they are still without any definite word, however to us it seems that this is far better that the word the Hensons and we received. At least if one believes in the oft quoted term NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS.
Our son in law has just returned from the Admiralty Islands. He is a pilot in the Navy Air Transport so after a few days here he now reports to Olathe Kansas. So our daughter has left to be with him at that point.
George must have had many experiences that he will long remember and it is our prayer that he is now in the best of health and that he may in the future enjoy all of the best which he so richly deserves.
We do hope that the opportunity to visit with George will develop in the near future. Yes we are anxious to meet you as you have been such a faithful correspondent not only with us but with other families of the men who were on the ill fated plane.
To you and your family our sincere greetings, believe me when I say that in these days of worry you have lightened our load greatly.
The Buslee’s son-in-law was Gene Kielhofer. He was married to their daughter, Janice.
