Spitball Army

Somewhere in America, there’s a street named after my Dad.

Dick to Crystal: 16 August 1941 (postcard #2)

May 11th, 2011 · No Comments

[Postcard picturing the metropolitan Seattle skyline, both as it is "today" (1941) and as it was in 1874. Postmarked on 16 August 1941 at 8:30 p.m. at Seattle, Washington. Addressed to Miss Crystal K., Berwyn, Ilinois.]

Hi Kiddle,

     In case you don’t get the card I sent yesterday, I want to repeat – I didn’t get any letter from you. I was really counting on it, too.

     Boy oh boy! is this a wonderful town. It is just as clean as a whistle. Every street is on a big slant. Walk around 4 blocks shopping and you are poo’d. We took a 4 hr sightseeing trip and covered 60 miles. The town is built around 5 lakes and a big ocean bay. I certainly would like to stay here and finish my education at this beautiful big U of W. It has any of the schools beat all hollow. We got through with customs at 10:30 and were in bed at 11:30 (2 weeks last night since I saw you). We will board a train at 10:15 to-night, Sat. 16. Some fun on a Saturday, getting on a train for amusement.

Thinking of you,
Dick
