Raymond Friscia Second World War correspondence
This collection contains 368 correspondence between Raymond Friscia to his future wife, Muriel Mitchell, during the Second World War. They had wanted to marry before Raymond went off to war, but were unable to because their parents disapproved. The correspondence detail the parts of their life that would not be censored as well as their affection for each other. There are some correspondence from Raymond Friscia to his mother, Jane Friscia, as well as correspondence to Raymond and Muriel from other family members including his mother, his sister Josephine, and Josephine's husband, Stanley Monacell. The donor edited many of their letters for content and space, but most are in their complete form as they were written. The donor adds that nothing of historical, cultural or sociological significance was omitted.
