Letters from Harold J. Dahl
April 14 
Dear Mom & Lou,
Have had three wonderful days here on pass. Saw Hovel, Monique & her family and met some friends of Norman’s [Dahl], the Vicomptess de Mauolanc [spelling not clear] and Major Kreyberg of the Norwegian forces. Also was one damn lucky G.I. to have a lovely American nurse all to myself. Perfectly wonderful girl who thinks Harold is just about the grandest man on earth. Lucky me!
We’ve been getting good news about the war & the terrible news of Mr. Roosevelt’s death. Here in Paris the feeling of mourning is universal, both the French & the G.I. participating.
Will write more about it later -
