To the editors:

Three cheers for your article on Jean Gump (April 17). We all need to know about the heroic acts of others, performed for the assurance of our future. The only information lacking in your article was Jean’s address for those who want to say “thanks” to her. I might suggest enclosing a stamped blank envelope in correspondence to Jean so that she might more easily be in touch with her family. What else can we do for such a woman who has put her life on hold for her principles? Here’s her address:
