We boys who shouldered arms … – 1918


We boys who shouldered arms all hope when we get home again, there’ll be another pair of arms around our shoulders then.  Loyalty Series.  Made in U.S.A.

Post marked Detroit, Mich.  Oct. 1, 1918.  Addressed to Florence Weaver, 1346 W. Broad St., Columbus, Ohio.

“Detroit  Oct 1, 18   Dear Florence, Your letter received yesterday.  I rent your S.C. Friday.  They said it would go at once, so you must sure have M-bug this time.  So, don’t buy any eggs and butter at that price.  That is more than they are here and we can use much this winter.  We will go Dutch with you.  Got a letter from Lee [Weaver] today real surprise that he was in Fort but guess it is best.  Dad [Lemuel Weaver].”

Post card from Great Grandpa Weaver to his daughter-in-law, Florence Koontz Weaver.  This was during the time Grandpa Lee was in the Army in New York.

Interesting set of flags that define the allies in WW I.
