Dear Betty,

My heart reaches out to you in gratitude and thankfulness for all that you have done to bring about victory in Europe, beginning back in the early days of 1939 and right up to the last moment.

My confidence is high for success here in San Francisco. Hepburn, Russell Willson and Train are all proving to be towers of strength to me.

Affectionately,

[signed] Ed

Admiral Harold R. Stark

Commander, Twelfth Fleet
