      An invitation addressed to Miss Jessie E. Mercer, "City", 807 Orange St.; Wilmington North Carolina; dated May 24, 1916 6PM. The invitation reads as follows: "On Your Graduation Day Congratulations and May your efforts be crowned by well deserved success and happiness. signed With love, Aunt Ruth !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Letter postmarked December 1918 to Miss Jessie Mercer, 520 Dock St.; Wilmington, NC; from Dennard McCool (fiance). The stationery is unique as each page depicts a battle scene in the header. The letter is dated December 25, 1918 (Camp Greene, Charlotte, N.C.) His return address is McCool; Co. No. B17th Bri, Reg't No USG, Camp Greer, N.C. "My Dear Jessie: was awful disappointed today not hearing from you. I don't know why but I was (really) looking for a letter from you today being it is Xmas day I am writing you anyway. 70 day has (certainly) been dull Xmas day for me. I haven't been outside my company street today but I intended going uptown tonight. Wish I was in Wilminton and I was going to see Jessie. Jessie this is rather an embarrasing letter to write on account of my not sending you a little remembance. Let me explain and I think you will understand. I thought I would be home by Xmans, and when I fout out we would not be, then I wrote Papa to send me a check. Thant was the same day I wrote you last, but that check hasn't arrived yet, so I hope ......( ) or anyone else since I have been here except one letter from H. Jack Hornback and that was forward from Wilmington, and you know I am so blooming lonesome I don't know what to do with myself. I only know a few people in Charlotte and not any girls I care to see, so you see I am all to myself. I was right amused yesterday at one of our officers, my company was in line, and this officer was asking each man if he wanted to join the regular army, when he came to me he said, "McCool I I ( ) would like to pull you in" and laughted, well I ( ) did feel so much like telling a man to go to the bad place, but I stood, I just told him that I wouldn't stay in the army if the Gov. offered to make me a colonel. I wonder if some one still wants me to come back to Wilminton. You know I am still on the finer (sp) in regards to that it will be Wilminton or Chicago, and I really believe I am very ( ) in hopes that somebody wants me to come back to Wilmington and I hope she will say so if she does. We certainly had a big dinner today. I don't jthink I will be hungry for several days after such a large or big dinner I ate today. Well I know you are tired to death reading this, so must stop. with my best of good wishes, Dennard ######################################################################
