Letter from Lieutenant Arthur Bahr to Max Phillips concerning the death of his son, Private 1st Class Frank Phillips, Company C, 150th Machinegun Battalion, 42nd Division. Americn E. F. France, Aug. 24, 1918 Mr. Max Phillips, My Dear Mr. Phillips, It is with the deepest sorrow that I have to inform you that you have given to America - to Liberty, and to the ideals of a free people - the supreme sacrfice - your son. Frank was instantly killed while in the performance of his duties, in action against the enemy, on July 29. America grieves the loss of a soldier - you grieve the loss of a son. Though your grief be deep let it be a comfort to you to know that Frank was a true son and a brave soldier. Expressing sympathy of the officers and men of Company C, I remain yours truly, Lieut. Arthur R. Bahr
