Sebago Historical Society
William Haley Jr., still at the General Hospital at Camp Keyes in Augusta, writes to his daughter Elzira, 14, and her cousin Mary.
He mentions that he has read the Maine Farmer newspaper indicating that he still follows the farm news even though he's away from home.
He asks them to "Tell mother I want her to send some good apples if there is any."
His letter is dated September 1 perhaps a little early for apples.
