    How many of those initials can you identify? (just curious!)

    • Cyn is Cynthia, who he later married and became my grandmother.
      MW is likely Mrs. Woodrow, who he has mentioned several times.
      The rest are a mystery, even when looking at the front pages of the 1918 journal which contains some addresses.

        Rats. I hoped you’d be able to match more against the names in the address book. Oh well.

    Why so many letters all on one day? Was it near his birthday or some special occasion? Were there issues preventing the mail from coming through earlier?

    • His birthday was May 10, so a bit late for that. Could just be that the mail had been held up for a while, and had just come through. There was a war going on, after all. 😉

    Makes sense. 😉
