Description Letter from George McCormac to Leona Perkins in Huntsville, Missouri. Written on YMCA paper with the phrase "With the Colors" as the letter head. Comes with envelope.

Friendly banter about how many letters he has written and how much he enjoys talking with her. Mentions being relocated at some point and provides the address on where to send future letters. Tells her he is writing on a table covered in sand from a dust storm that had been going on all day and that there is a loud boxing match going on nearby. Finishes the letter by stating he was listed as a clerk on the company roster. Signed: Must close for this time, Leona dear, With much love, George.
