Download Full Text (1.2 MB)
This letter, dated November 15, 1917, from J. Arthur [Illegible, possibly "Young"] to Ensign Marshall of the Salvation Army asks Marshall to travel to Noonan, North Dakota (ND) to speak with ND Senator Oscar Lindstrom, or, alternatively, to speak with Lindstrom when he returns to Bismarck, in order to persuade Lindstrom to contact his wife in Norway and send money for her return voyage to ND, and to "secure his word that he will support his wife as becomes a man of his station in life."
Arthur also suggests that there may be another woman involved in the case and that he should look into this possibility.
