Bob Jones wrote this letter to his parents while stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany. Jones writes about the three days he spent on leave in Paris, France with his roommate, Leo Mahler, and two friends from his battalion, Gene Mayhew and André Kirby. He describes the journey to and from the city, as well as all the sites they visited. Jones promises to send photos taken with his new camera in later letters.

Jones was a professor of physics at Linfield College from 1955-1987.
