Nice, July 23, 1945
Dear Dr. Stoughton,
The circular and your note caught up with me several weeks ago — and I am sorry to have been so very lax in answering them both. I am happy to enclose a check for one hundred dollars payable to Wagner College, and I hope it reaches you before you leave. It’s quite impossible to think of Wagner without you — but I know you must feel strongly about your new work.
I have been in Nice for just two and a half months now — and I’ve already met two Wagnerians. Ed Jones was in Cannes, the officer’s leave area, for a seven-day leave in May and I saw him walking down the street as I was leaning out a bus window. Bill Goelnitz tapped me on the shoulder in the Red Cross club in Nice several weeks ago and we spent an evening “reminiscing” and wondering at the trite but true “smallness” of the world.
Red Cross work is still far too new for me to give a really good description — but in general we run a recreational program for the fifteen thousand men who spend

seven-day leaves in Nice. It’s tremendously interesting and satisfying — a good combination for work.
Please give my very best wishes to Mrs. Staughton and Jean and Don. It’s Wagner’s loss — but I hope, too, that you will have the greatest possible success in your new position.
Sincerely,
Peggy Buck
