The Forks, Ligonier, Ind. Auburn Post Card Mfg. Co. Auburn, Ind.
Post marked Ligonier, Ind. Aug. 24, 1917. Addressed to Miss Florence Koontz, 826 S High Street, Columbus, O.
” O hit I am sick of this place already. It seems as if I couldn’t learn to like the place. Henry”
This is from Henry Allen Koontz to his sister, Florence. Ligonier was the home of their grandfather and uncle. “O hit” must have been a 1917 version of an expletive. And Uncle Heinie must have really hated it since he signed it Henry instead of Heinie as was his custom.
