Post HQ and Hospital, Columbus, O. – 1920


637 Post Headquarters and Hospital, United States Barracks, Columbus, Ohio.  Published by Haentein Bros., Columbus, Ohio.

Post marked Columbus, Ohio.  Nov 8, 1920.  Addressed to Mrs. L. G. [Lee G. / Florence Koontz] Weaver, 92 Tireman Ave, Detroit, Mich.

“Florence, They said they would exchange the bath robe for a larger one so send it back.  I’ll be glad to exchange it.  Should I get 3 or 4 year old?  That one was a 2 year old.   Ethel [Koontz Griste]”

Apparently, Aunt Ethel, Grandma Florence’s older sister, had sent Leila, Florence’s and Lee’s daughter a bath robe for her birthday (she was one year old the prior October).  Leila must have been a large baby or bath robes ran small since a 2 year was too small for a one year old.
