Description

This typed, undated letter, is to Kelvie Jennings in a Marine Corps training camp in San Diego, California from his wife, Jewel Jennings in Jackson, Mississippi. The letter discusses Jewel practicing driving, the possibility of selling their car, and her hope that she can be with him as soon as he is stationed somewhere. The letter speaks of a friend's despondency at her own husband having been shipped off to the war. The envelope bears two purple three cent postage stamps in the upper right and the date of the Jackson, Mississippi postmark is partially illegible, leaving only ""August 1942"" visible.
