Letter from Joe Olexa to Agnes Van Der Weide, July 19, 1942

Description

Handwritten letter and envelope with transcript by Joe Olexa to Agnes Van Der Weide, dated July 19, 1942. The envelope is sent from Co. L, 26th Infantry, A.P.O. #1209, New York, New York, dated July 20, 1942. In the letter, Joe affectionately writes to Agnes upon receiving a letter and souvenir from her, sharing how she is always on his mind, and his hopes for receiving a pass or a furlough so they can be together again.
