I think this a pretty heavy quota for Webster
County3 under the present conditions, so I would like to make
my contribution to the Red Cross fund as a citizen of Webster County. As I
see that Walter4 is treasurer I send
my check to you. If it is turned in to the Red Cross solicitors, they will
re accept a check on the Chase Bank as
I own land in Webster County and pay taxes there, so I should think I would be allowed to contribute my donation from there and help to bring the quota up to the stipulated amount.
I have been out of the French Hospital5 for nearly three weeks, but I am not very energetic. There was very serious the matter—a sore throat that kept hanging edge of quinsy but never quite got there. You remember mother6 used to have those bad throat attacks. This was the first time for me. It made me think a lot about her.Lovingly Willie
P. S. I do not check on my account in Walter’s bank, because if my Chase
Bank check is sent to the Red Cross Headquarters it will be returned to
me and can be filed among
contribution checks for the Income Tax examiner. I’m writing
indistinctly because I’m tired, my dear.
The Red Cross is the one charity I know that does what it pretends to.
