The Ring – September 23, 1948

To review:  Z’s family in Czechoslovakia sent the ring on April 8, 1948 to the Buslee’s in Park Ridge, Illinois.  Expected arrival was April 29, but the ring had still not surfaced by September.

In an effort to locate the ring, Mr. B had written to the American Embassy in Czechoslovakia on September 9 and had received a reply that the embassy was in possession of the ring.

Dear Sir:

Your letter of 9 September 1948 has been referred to this office for reply. We are indeed happy to inform you that we now have the ring in question in our possession and that the ring will be sent to “Mr. and Mrs. John Buslee, 411 Wisner Avenue, Park Ridge, Illinois, U.S.A.” immediately by registered APO mail.

Trusting this information will be of interest to you, I remain
