The third release, typed, undated but likely from the summer of 1944, was written by Elbert Aidline-Trommer, entitled "Hitler defeated in Chicago", and discusses Charles J. Anderson Jr.'s failed 1944 "run for Congress in the sixth district as a Republican on a Nazi platform".

The header of this leaf has the title "So 6847 Pauline", and the English translation is written directly below the Norwegian original ;
  • eight lines of translation of a fourteen line untitled poem, also presumably by Aslaug Vaa, which begins "A, so det vesle båmet reeddest / når det møter det ukjende. / Ein gong i eit framandt land, / sto eg og var dette ukjende for ein liten kropp", which Leslie has translated as "Of course a little child is frightened / when he meets with an unknown one. / Once upon a time on strange soil / I stood and was this unknown one for a little body." The Norwegian text and English translation are written on separate leaves ; and
  • four stanzas of the poem 'Duva og Dropen,' which begins "Det kurra ei duve / med bekken Mahala / i skuggen av palmur / og driv kvite kala", which Leslie has translated as "A dove coos so warmly / where murmurs Mahala / In shade of the palm trees / and drifts of white kalla".
