     Down here it was an ordinary day,

with class and M-W seminar discussion

of Civil Liberties – before going to see the

very good “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”

     I couldn’t be more shocked than

at the news of President Roosevelt’s

sudden death!  Though it has been

long acknowledged as a possibility, I

doubt if many actually thought it

would happen now.  I wonder what

the effect will be on our national

and world future, and pray that

it won’t result in lengthening the

war.   Truman should make an

“interesting” President – I wonder

how good he’ll be though!

     The usual type of letter from

Floyd in the Phillipines – and a

sweetly congratulatory one from

Mrs. Marsh of St. Mary’s.
