Dear Mr & Mrs Carter,

Please find below the content of a Telegram we've received addressed to you.


HAVE LOCATED CLETUS+WOUNDS VERY SERIOUS+DOCTORS OPERATED FOR TWELVE HOURS+THEY HAVE INFORMED ME THAT CLETUS+++++ MESSAGE ENDS

The message was cut short due to an enemy air raid knocking out a communication station in England. We regret that have no further information on who sent the message or on the fate of the Cletus mentioned. We hope you know the originator of the message and can contact them for further information.

Western Union regret that we were unable to fully transmit the message in this instance.

Yours sincerely,
A. N. Williams
(Bureau Chief, Washington D.C. Office)

    1. That's all you're going to get. You can decide for yourselves if he lived or died. :-)
