    Is this the same year as the friend was arrested? Maybe that?

    Could be. He was arrested in December of 1943. But, wouldn’t you have written a little more detail than this? Also, why grama and not grampa. What could grama know about the rape accusation. If it was a character witness, wouldn’t grampa have been a better one since he worked with grampa? Oh well. That’s what makes this fun. Trying to figure it all out.
