14th June 1958 Dear Mrs. Sawyer, Thank you for your letter of May 11th. It was very kind of you to reply to our advertisement so promptly. I am sure our author, Mr. Ryan, would be most interested to hear of your husband's experiences on D-Day. At present he is in Paris interviewing French civilians and Resistance workers who were in Normandy during the first hours of the Invasion. He is returning to England shortly, when he hopes to be able to talk to men and women of the British Forces about their D-Day experiences. In the meantime we should be very grateful if your husband would kindly complete and return the enclosed questionnaire. A stamped and addressed envelope is also enclosed for his use. I will write to you again on Mr. Ryan's return.

Yours sincerely, (Joan Ogle Isaacs ) Research Editor

Mrs. J. Sawyer, 76 Bisson Road, Stratford, London E.15.
