The Envelope From Archie Richardsons Mail Home

Archie L. Richardson serving in France during WWI, wrote home to his mother who was living with his older brother, describing the battle scenes and conditions.

The front of the envelope is stampled "Passed Censor". Though he described battle conditions and encounters there was no mention in his letter of his location in France.

Archie died in the late 1920's from after effects of German poison gas during the war.
