My Dear Hargrove,
After an agonizing suspense of ten days we were officially notified on Monday 11th, the same day peace was declared, that you were a prisoner at an officers' camp — Karlsruhe Germany. Our thankfulness and rejoicing was unbounded to know you were alive for the only news we had of you was that you were missing on Sept. 29th. Several have written that you were wounded in fact that you lost an arm — my darling, this is nothing to us compared with your life if God will just let you come back to us. As all prisoners were to be released at once I trust — you are either back with your Company or on your way back home to us. Aunt Liz and Sarah have been with us since Nov. 2nd it has meant so much and such a comfort to have them with us. We have cabled in every direction to find out about you and the official report that you were a prisoner came through the American Red Cross. We will be more than anxious until we hear direct from you.
