The most phenomenal day of all --- as
at 3:00 this afternoon Pres. Truman announced
the earth-shaking news that Russia has
declared war on Japan at last. With this,
added to the revelation of the atomic
bomb, it really looks as though Japan
can’t hold out much longer. Speculation
is high that the war will be over in
a matter of weeks. I want it so badly
though that I won’t let myself get
too optimistic. Oh God, it’s so near now!
Mother, Nana and I went into
Brooklyn. I saw “You Came Along” again
and loved it even more than I did the
first time -- and “Adventures of Rusty,”
which wasn’t bad at all. We had Chinese
lunch and then Mother and I went
to the hospital.
The news is so wonderful!
A letter from Midge.
