1941, October 31: Eve to Ben Reitman

Eve writes a postcard, her sixth communication with Ben Reitman.

Nice France October 31, 1941

My dear Ben,

Rec'd your card. And was indeed very happy to get news from you and your family -- I remembered attending a birthday party when Brutus was 4 years old and I wish I could be there to attend the birthday parties of Mecca and Twinzie [Reitman's daughters, born in late 1930's], but let us hope dear Ben that you will succeed and I can look again at old Chicago in the near future.- Yes I know of poor Emma and glad she is resting at Waldheim and poor Sasha & little Emmy I miss them so. They were such dear friends.  Life was different when they were here among us. I have E G photo in my room framed on the wall a splendid photo taken by a friend of mine in Paris Mrs Dolly Stamm -- I am sure you have heard of her from EG Do you ever see Ruth or Eulalia Burke  if you do give them my love.

[?] a card and hoping it will reach you sooner. Let me hear from you again soon. Hoping you are well happy. All my love to you, your family and all my old friends. A bientot,

Eve Zloczower 58 rue de France NICE (A.M.) [Alpes Maritimes] France to Monsieur Ben L Reitman, 32 North State Street Chicago Ill USA
