I am so regret that I have not written to you since so long time.
I hope that you are getting all right with all matter which you are
I am still serving with British Arny "but they will run down by
1st Sept. Ana then they will remain a small part of Liaison Group in
Korea. I have not known yet I may join with them or not. If not I may
transfer to US Division.
The Lt Col. Chung remarried last month. Ife ivoroed former his
wife* It is very curious matter which I aont understand that some of
our Chung's family had been remarried in so many cases since our grandfather's age. Some lost his wife and some -discarded.
I know that some of our ancient had Pnd wife. I always blame them
because their sons and daughters are mostly miserable life. All this
kind of unfortune caused by our ancient's rich. Such bad tradition will
be smashed some day.
ibw days ago Korean government announced that Mr. Han Bum Chung
were appointed as Korean Minister to England. He was a your sucoesor to
Korean Minister to Japan.
The Coaiaado Sue retired from navy and now he is going to possess
the big factory as his own. The factory price is approximately 1000
million HWAN* He is not going to pay the sum in once. He basin do pay J^T
back to government for 15 years. He will became a President of the
factory* The Commado Sue told me that the factory will produce truck
and bus engines soon. Also we had talked about you a lot.
A thousands and thousand Korean people recoginize you through
your bocks and they respect you so much. If you allow me to speak
frankly, some times you treat Korean people ooldjjy. Beoause you oftenly
visit Korea and you see miserable and dirty and uncivillized thing.
So you dont want to stay in Korea. Xou never tried to ged chance, just
sit in States and writes few bocks that is not enough for Korea. Korea
needs you now. The poor and miserable people want you. Son© of good
political men work hard* I asked ycu when you were in K^rea, please do
work in Korea and stay in Korea. You said all of political matters make
me headaoh I aont want to stay# Arty matter in life bring suffer to the
people. But *e have to stand on. Plea re encourage your-re If and do something. I know the Mr. Chung. He is not much popular to our peoole but
I think he did hard for something so he was appointed 64 a minister.
I had asked you to send me your family's photograph, I do not know
what is on your mind. It is not only curious mind to see your family.
If you would not mina please send me your own family's phnto#
I hope you dont mind on ny letter and write to me.
