S/Sgt. Henry Lubben



Mr. and Mrs. Henry S. Lubben received a letter from their son, Sgt. Henry Lubben, now stationed somewhere in Egypt, that he had just received his Globe-Post, showing the pictures of the mill fire. He told how much he appreciated getting his paper, and thinks people at home should be grateful for enough of anything to make a fire with. Where he is stationed there is only sand and nothing else. He said that even the smoke in the picture was a “welcome relief” compared to the desolate, dry country of Egypt.
