Hamilton County Court House – 1918


Hamilton County Court House, Cincinnati, Ohio.16573.  Pub. by Cincinnati News Company, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Post marked Cincinnati, Ohio, May 14, 1918.  Addressed to Mrs. L. G. [Lee G./ Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman, Detroit, Michigan.

“Cincinnati 5-14-18  Keep trying is my motto.  Hope you are still satisfied.  If everything goes right now I will have some action before long.  Will write again. Bill [William P. Koontz]”

Uncle Bill was Grandma Florence’s younger brother.  And, a bit of a joker.   The remark about being still satisfied is probably in reference to that Grandma and Grandpa were married the prior April 27th.  The action he was anticipating was probably not of the 21st century meaning, but in anticipation of his being shipped over to France for service in World War I.
