Dear Laurie: Rec'd your letter from Estero, dated the 6th. Letter from Claude Rahn to Laurie Bubbett — E. Orange New Jersey to Miami Florida.
Scope & Content:
A handwritten letter on notebook paper. This letter begins with Claude talking about someone named "Bill" and his "heroism". Claude also talks about Laurie's financial condition and says that "I know your financial condition perhaps as well as yourself, so do not feel embarrassed in receiving infrequent favors from me." Claude encloses a "Christmas rememberance" for Laurie. Claude also says he has enclosed some "prints of our recent trip abroad." [Cuba — See LB—003]. He talks about seeing someone named "Nell and Jamie". Claude says he is going to Baltimore on Christmas, "Walter and Rena [presumably Walter Rahn, Claude's brother.] are expected to come east at that time too. Their son, Kenneth married on December 12th." He closes with talk about how busy he is and how he anticipates a boom in business and how "...our rulers are preparing for our entrance into the general war." He closes by saying that he hopes "Bob and Lloyd [Graham] and his wife will have a very Happy Christmas season." Also enclosed in the envelope is a poem, written by Claude in 1938 concerning his first wife, Imogene Bubbett.
