This group of letters were written from W. N. (William Neill) Bogan, Jr. where he is stationed in Germany to Juliette Chamberlin in Jackson, Mississippi and were grouped in one envelope. The handwritten letter dated October 18, 1945 describes the job he's been doing, his recreational activities, and discusses news from home. The letter dated October 29, 1945 discusses his lack of correspondence, the boxes he's received, and an upcoming move. The letter dated November 9, 1945 describes the cold weather, his recreational activities, and sporting events. Five black and white photographs of his travels are included with the letters. The postmark on the air mail envelope is too faded to read. A red six cent air mail postage stamp is in the upper right. "Nuremberg GR Oct 18-29-Nov 9-45" is written in red along the bottom of the envelope. Dates are written in pencil on the back of the envelope.
