A handwritten copy of a speech that was given to the Topeka chapter of the National Military Sisterhood of America written in black ink
Speech begins by noting how the awful sacrifice of war has reached the Topeka chapter because of the death of Fred L. James, son of Mrs. R. R. James due to blood sickness at Fort Sheridan on August 9th 1919. The speech then states the need for hallowed remembrance for all those who have suffered due to the war, and lists a few of the mothers that have suffered due to the loss of their sons. It then says that these women must honor the youthful manhood of their sons. The speech then takes several lines to glorify the soldiers of World War One, and thanks the woman again for their sacrifices.
From the service of Grace M. Fable, president of the Topeka Chapter of the National Military Sisterhood of America and mother of Frank Fable, Bty. A 130th FA, 35th Division.
