Content Description

Two letters from Dorwin Keller to Stella Breece dated February 22, 1945 and March 15, 1945. In the first letter he thanks her for the box of goodies and recites a poem about the country in which he is based, India. It is not a very optimistic outlook of his location nor the situation of being at war. In the second letter Keller sent along a Japanese bill that he claimed he took from a dead soldier. He indicated that if there was blood on the note that she should just lay it out in the sun so the blood could fade away. He then goes on to comment on the poor quality of Japanese blood, calling it blood type X, and that it is the poorest in the world.
