10 January 1945
Stone, Robert L. (1921-2009)
Autograph letter signed
Title: to Mildred Hilson and Edwin Hilson
Addressed to "Mildred and Eddie." He thanks Mildred and Eddie for the "assortment of eats" which will be "hungrily devoured." The food doesn't compare to the Waldorf, so the treats are very welcome. He mentions that the holidays came and went with only a turkey dinner to show for it. He now has seventeen missions under his belt and they've been flying regularly. He's hoping to be finished up soon as "the business of combat flying isn't my idea of a very practical career!." He should be going on leave soon and he's excited to "live like a human being again." He wishes them a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. A post-it note with the collection notes that while this letter was sent to the Hilsons, it was given to Jacob Stone to keep.
