Content Description

This collection contains photocopies of correspondence from Joe L. McCarthy during the First World War. The first two letters in the collection are written from Iowa. In these (one of which is addressed to his Brother) McCarthy describes day to day life in and around camp. He inquires after his family, complains about the lack of mail he is receiving from them, and wonders when he will be sent to France. The third letter in the collection is from France and describes his first impressions. He writes about the weather, "French style", and there being no watermelon patches.
