Quick Note from the Nation’s Capital in 1942

Lincoln 2

During a weekend liberty in the nation’s capital, Lester jotted a quick note home on a picture postcard of the Lincoln Monument.

September 27, 1942

8 p.m.

Hello folks. Does it always rain in Washington? It was raining when I arrived last night and it is still raining at noon today. I talked to Anne Miller and the Dohring girls last night. We are going out to Walter Cobbs this afternoon if we can. Haven’t been able to do any sightseeing yet except close to the capitol. It is very difficult to find any kind of a room here. Quite a busy place.

Love to all
