Henrietta Thompson's second letter to then-retired war correspondent Jack Belden (Henrietta had apparently received no answer to her first letter of inquiry). Belden had walked out of Burma with General Stilwell in 1942, and published Retreat with Stilwell in 1943. Thompson had obtained Belden’s address by sending a series of letters to his publisher, Harper & Row.
