    There is meaning here I think but I’m squinting to see it. Is this simply a call to be attentive correspondence wise to relatives and friends who’re in the service? Maybe it’s my modern sensibilities but does our subject here almost look like a woman? I think I’m reading too much into it.

      Not sure if it’s a call or not. Kind of reads that way, but I don’t know if they did those back then the way we sort of do now? That (lightly) is kind of why I put it up today.

      In any event, it’s one of the “When a Feller Needs a Friend” so it may just be a feller needing a friend (and not having one.)
