Preserved with it is the War Department’s original presentation letter on War Department, Office of the Chief of Staff letterhead, to Mrs. H.H. Arnold: “General Marshall feels sure that you will not wish to wait until General Arnold comes home before seeing the Casablanca photographs. I enclose a set which General Marshall particularly wants you to have.”
