Dear Millie:

Mr. Merrall, who is the secretary of Gen. Bell and accompanied him on his trip to France, has just returned to the city and brings me the enclosed note from Adolph which he wished to have sent to you. Mr. Merrall, before entering the service, was Mr. Miller’s secretary. Mr. Merrall says he found Adolph looking fine and having, as he termed it, “A good time”. I telegraphed Grasty the other day to make inquiry about Adolph but have not had any answer to my cable. To-day we had a letter from Grasty, and I sent you by wire what he said, which was as follows:

“Adolph is taking care of the business of the Stars and Stripes. He telephoned me the other night. Gen. Leonard Wood was dining with me and I asked Adolph to come along but he said he had a lot of work to do at the office.”

The Stars and Stripes is, as you know, the trench paper.

Yours &c.
Adolph

Mr. Milton B. Ochs,
