Description

This handwritten letter, dated September 5, 1942, is written to Kelvie Jennings at a Marine Corpse training camp in San Diego, California from his wife, Jewel Jennings, in Jackson, Mississippi. The letter discusses her preparations to secure a job in San Diego, what she plans to do with their furniture and other possessions, and other preparations for her move to be with him. The letter goes on to discuss friends who are serving in the war and news of what she and their family have been doing. The closing page appears to be missing from the letter. The envelope bears two purple three cent stamps and a postmark for Jackson, Mississippi, September 5, 1942.
