July 10, 1917 – The Life and Letters of World War I Aerial Observer Lt. Mortimer M. Lawrence

July 10, 1917.

Dear Folks:-


As I wired you this morning I have been discharged on account of being underweight.

Thought I’d like to have a few days vacation so I am going to stop in Chicago and elsewhere but will be home soon.  Don’t worry about me because I am O.K. and am not going to do anything foolish.

Am enclosing two express orders.  The one for Sis includes the T.P.A., hose, pictures and the $5.00 I borrowed Sunday.


Love to all,
