Mommy is philosophical about the stories she sent to Redbook. “If they’re returned (and I won’t be surprised if they are), don’t feel too bad,” she wrote to Daddy, “I won’t be discouraged. I’ll just keep writing and collecting rejection slips. Someday a collector will pay good money for my rejection slips. Anyway, I promised G-d that if He would keep you safe and bring us a baby in July (or June), I would be willing to get the stories back. Seems like a fair enough offer, doesn’t it ?” If G-d answers such prayers, I hope he keeps all our soldiers safe. The Nazis just struck back across the Rhine and are fighting our troops 9 miles from Strasbourg. They’ve even stepped up V2 rocket attacks on London. But our secret new artillery weapon is finally having an effect. All we know now is that the Navy developed it.
