Nurse Ruth Beery: Correspondence with Next of Kin (Letter 30)

Kalamazoo Mich
March 10-46

My dear Miss Beery,
Your kindness in writing
me about my son, Jack will
most certainly never be forgotten
by me. At first I clung to the
belief it just couldn’t be true,
and then I did so badly want
to know the details, you
can believe me, it helps
to know that he was at least
given good care, I know too
he must have been injured
very bad or he would have
made it, as he was such a
good clean healthy boy.

Thank you again, so much
for writing, seems like my
words are not enough to make
you realize how your letter
has helped me, I was ill
when it came, that is the
reason I have not answered
Wishing you all the luck
and joyies [joys] of life

Most sincerely
Florence [?] M. Dulton
215 N. Westnedge Ave.
