June 19, 1917 – The Life and Letters of World War I Aerial Observer Lt. Mortimer M. Lawrence

June 19, 1917

Dear Folks:-

 

Just a line to let you know I got back O.K.  The train was late, so was the electric, and I didn’t get in till eleven, but it was O.K.  Had a fine time at the Lake.  Had company all the way down from Minnesota Junction.

 

Love to all,

 

Mortimer
