Dear Roy-

Mr. Vint asked me to send you the enclosed letter and he wants you to sign it and send it right off to the Commission. We are all so pleased to hear that your son may pay the back retirement for you. We gather you have not written the Commission as I suggested after talking with Grace Nichols and getting that dope for you. You are a bad boy not to do this, so sit right down and mail this letter to them.

Thank Jane for the nice letter, which I hope to answer real soon. We are in a rush of post-war planning right now, and not a minute to spare, but this for you. I am so glad to hear things are going nicely for you. It must have been fun seeing Mr. Coffman, Richey, etc. and I'll bet Jane had a swell dinner. Well, goodbye now and love,
