This handwritten letter, dated February 27, 1945, is written from W.N. Bogan, Jr. where he is stationed in France to his family in West Point, Mississippi. The letter updates his family on what packages he's received, what he needs and doesn't need them to send them, and why. The letter goes on to speculate on the German Propaganda he's heard over the radio and describe how "backwards" the towns he's seen in France appear to be. The letter is signed "Devotedly, Buddy." No envelope is included.
