tender love and affection that I
look over the years that have pass

I have had at your hands, and words
cannot express my devotion. A man's

When a child is out playing and
something goes wrong, or it gets
hurt, the first one to whom it will
go is its mother. If a man is out in
the world and gets into trouble th
first one he seeks to tell his trouble
to is his mother, for she will always
listen and give him the benefit of
the doubt, and will consider things
in a different light from the rest of
the world. And through it all she
will never lose her faith and trust

This is one of the most lovely
days I have seen in France and it

Well, mother dear. I hope this

feeling fine and dandy and waiting
patiently for Uncle Sam to say he
