81 Letters from Walter L. Myers to family

See container list for individual letter transcription/cataloging

Walter would sometimes sign his letters as "Bill" which is a cartoon character he created. Letters are signed as "Bill" when it is a second letter for the day OR when he is talking about something that might get him in trouble. It may be that he is "Soldier Bill" going to fight Kaiser Bill. The monicker is alluded to in one of his early letters.
