Prichard, who had served under Huebner, discusses military politics, family news, etc. In part: "...the Commander for the First Army has not been designated...there might be an opportunity for a promotion [for you] if MacArthur and Clay should turn in their suits...considerable criticism...as result of the trials of the [Gestapo] officers in charge of the guard house at Wurzburg at the time a prisoner had his feet frozen. We had many inquiries from the press concerning your statement that plans for the invasion had been captured by the Germans on Omaha Beach...The promotion list has gone to the White House. I have not seen it. No news on Bedell Smitt...Malmedy keeps cropping up..." With carbon copies of Huebner's associated letters as well. Fine.
