were that I would be home soon and that two friends of hers would die. The latter has happened within this past week and perhaps it would not be amiss to relate a story about one of the deaths.
My sister, aforementioned, had a very dear girl friend. She came over to the house often and we knew her well. She was working for the Medical Corps of the War Dept, on Greenwich St. but about 6 months ago, she was discharged for having the same faith as Christ. She was unable to find another job and one night she failed to come home and the next morning[‘]s mail brought a letter to her folks in which she wrote that she was going to kill herself. She said she wants to live but she cannot. She was a fine girl. A graduate of Wash. [illegible word] & Hunters College. 21 years old and sacrificed on the altar of Moloch.
