Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer

Item Information

Title:
Letter from Clinton T. Brann to Rhea Oppenheimer
Description:
Clint replies to Rhea's question by telling her that he is no longer engaged and she should soon receive some letters from him with more of his thoughts. The direction of their relationship will be discussed when he returns home, but he urges her not to feel obligated to wait for him, although he loves her and will not fall in love with anyone else in the meantime. When he spoke about her to Llyod, he said he'd had a feeling all along they would end up together. He's just heard in the paper that Germany is accepting Wilson's terms, although he's not sure if it's true. They're staying in a "mansion" of a dugout, captured from the Germans. He talks about the poppies and the monuments on the battlefield of the Marne, and is glad she received the poppy he sent her. He's sorry to hear of Mr. Leonard's death and hopes Pete will get through it.
