LETTER FROM HENRY COX (Written to Pauline Cox from her husband, Henry.) November 12, 1944 Somewhere in Germany Dear Wife and Baby: Well, I will try and write a few lines to let you know I am O.K. How is everybody at Home? Fine I hope. I got a letter from you yesterday and was sure glad to hear from you. I also got one from Altha and mother and one from Erma. I got a Christmas package from Erma and Charles, too. It sure was nice and I am using it now. Well Pauline I got to visit a town in Holland a few days ago and I sure enjoyed myself. I had a nice visit with a Dutch family and I ate a meal with them. I also got to eat some ice cream. It sure tasted good after going so long without it. A little bit about the town. It was a nice place about the size of Logansport with several hotels which were real modern and also restaurants and stores, a lot like ours in the States. They also have a couple of nice theatres and parks. You don't see very many cars but what there is are mostly Fords and Chevrolets just like ours at home. Most everyone rides a bicycle, old and young. They have a few buses like we have too. The people were all friendly and tried to make us feel at home. Well, Pauline, it has been rainy and cold the last few days. It snowed a little one day just a few minutes. Oh yes, I got some Christmas cards and sent some out too. You will probably get one by the time this letter gets there. I am sending one to our little daughter, too. I wanted her to have something from Daddy, anyway. I can not imagine how sweet she is trying to talk and everything. Well I have run out of news for now. So will close hoping to hear from you soon. Lots of love and kisses to my sweet wife and baby. From Henry [The News-Sentinel, Wednesday, December 6, 1944]
