This handwritten letter, dated March 4, 1945, is written from W. N. (William Neill) Bogan, Jr. where he is stationed in France to his family in West Point, Mississippi. The letter updates them on the plethora of mail and packages he's finally receiving and explains why he hasn't written to a particular family his mom mentioned. The letter goes on to describe what he's been doing. The letter is signed "Devotedly, Buddy." The air mail envelope is postmarked twice. The first postmark is for U. S. Army Postal Service, March 7, 1945 and the second postmark is for West Point, Mississippi, March 30, 1945. A red six cent air mail postage stamp is in the upper right and an army examiner ink stamp is in the lower left with a signature beneath it.
