Dear Mr. Palmer:
Thank you very much for your recent letter and for your willingness
to help us with Cornelius Ryan's book about D-Day

During the nest few months, both in this country and in Europe, Mr.
Ryan will be interviewing many of the D-Day participants who agree
to contribute to the book. Very probably, he will wish to talk with
you during that period. In the meantime, since we are dealing with
so many people, we have found it necessary to develop an individual
file on each person who agrees to help us. Therefore, we hope you will
complete the enclosed record and return it to me at your earliest con-
venience. We truly believe that these questions will serve you, as well
as us, if they can help to crystallize some hazy memories and to indi-
cate the sort of information which we are seeking.

I should be most grateful to know as soon as possible when and if you
will be available for interview. We want very much to tell the story
of your unit, and in order to do that we need the personal accounts
of the men who were there. We particularly look forward to your reply.
Sincerely yours,

Frances Ward
