Letters Home

from Fort Flagler, Washington




Feb. 26, 1918

Fort Flagler, Wash.


Dear Brother and Sister,

I thought I would answer your kind and ever welcome letter which [I] received yesterday.  I got that money all right, but Fred you should not do that.  I sure appreciate it and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the same.  You are doing more than your share, may God Bless you and yours, and may he repay you for what you are doing for me.  For I never can pay you.

 I was to Everrett Sunday to church and took Lordís Supper.  Everrett is about 70 miles from here, but that minister said he was going to try and hold services here in the future.

 I wish I could talk to you once more, but I am afraid it will be some time before I can.  I guess I will close for this time.  Write soon and again a 100 thanks to you. 

With Love and Best regards and I remain as ever your Brother,


Post Office Box No 1

Fort Flagler, Wash.
