One letter from Susan Prowell Graeff and Raymond James Graeff to Leonard Eugene Graeff dated November 22, 1943. Susan recounts a visit to Uncle John who is doing much better. He has lost a lot of weight and is down to 130 pounds. All his hair has gone white, and he looks a lot older but is no longer in so much pain. Susan's back is bothering her again and she woke up in pain. She took photographs of him to Edna, Florence, and his grandpa and they really liked them. She updated him on the proofs of a picture he had taken while he was home on leave and mentions the prices of the photo, frame, and tinting. He did not get any mail from Fuzz, but did receive the company bulletin. Susan is going to call Fuzz's mother and see if he is home.
