- Dear Captain Holderman:
- To my great delight I have just received
a notification of the award to you of the Medal of Honor. I am
enclosing herewith the carbon copy, although I know the information
will have reached you direct.
- This is the finest news in the world
and I am looking forward with eagerness to passing it on to George
- I wish I could be on hand to see you
- Let me hear from you when you can.
- With best wishes, as ever,
- Sincerely yours,
- Charles W. Whittlesey.
