Letter from Joe Olexa to Agnes Van Der Weide, July 20, 1942

Description

Handwritten letter and envelope with transcript by Joe Olexa to Agnes Van Der Weide, dated July 20, 1942. The envelope is sent from Co. L, 26th Infantry, A.P.O. #1209, New York, New York, dated July 21, 1942. In the letter, Joe writes to Agnes sharing how it is difficult for him to write long letters when writing each day or upon receiving multiple letters all at once, but he reassures her that he is thinking of her often and wishing they could spend the weekend together. He also writes that he will be on Guard Duty the next day and how he spent the day doing laundry and preparing his uniform among other activities.
