>From Old Messer, P. Eduard Eichhorn writes:
It is my pleasure to have the honor to inform the National Lutheran Council that I have received another 112 Packets through P. Ernst for my Parish. I have had these gifts of love distributed to the poorest of our population and the elderly and the sick. These warmly thank the Lutheran Council for the great trouble you have gone to and the work you have done to feed the hungry and forlorn and give them new courage. We can again attend church and take communion and also give thought to our religious and moral being because we had come to a point where we were no longer able to think or pray. We know not what the future will bring. The outlook for the harvest is far from satisfying, little was sown and therefore little can be brought home. We place our last hopes on your further assistance through the Council and with God and we are very grateful to you Americans for the good deeds you have shown us with patience and humility and we will carry them with
us until the end when we stand before the conquering crown.
Hugh Lichtenwald, from the farm in Monetta, SC
