"I hope you are as warm as I am; as serene in your room as I am here," the young lieutenant says, his attempt to reassure so telling of that bond between mother and son. "Of this I am certain, you could not be visited by a band of friends half so fine as surround me here. There is no danger down here or if any, it will be well over before you read these lines."
