Letter To Danton from Grandfather Ed Burroughs
June 22  1944 ~ Master Danton Burroughs ~ Tarzana, California 
Dear Danton: 
ERB personal letter to young DantonJust two years ago today your brother arrived when our world did not look too bright.  But you come in on the crest of a victorious wave that is carrying us and our allies to successful ending of World War II much sooner than we had expected. 

If your generation shows more intelligence than past generations, perhaps there will be no more wars.  But that is almost too much to expect.  However, there is a chance.  You have been born into the greatest nation the world has ever known.  Keep it great.  Keep it strong.  If you do, no country will dare to go to war if we say no. 

Put this letter away and read it June 21st 1965.  You will be of  age then.  See then if the politicians have kept your country great and strong.  If they haven't, do something about it.  If I'm around I'll remind you. 

Good luck my boy, Your Grandfather ~ (sig) Edgar Rice Burroughs
