Scope & Content Letter addressed to Jennie McKisic informing her of her fathers condition in a hospital in Pennsylvania during the Spanish American War.

Miss Jennie McKisec

Dear Madame--Your father recieved a letter forwarded from Camp meade. He felt worried for fear you had not had word that he was safely away from camp. The hospital authorities took your address and I presume ere this you have recieved word of your father's condition-He was brought here from camp a week a go--along with 48 others-He was quite ill and while far from well yet is improving rapidly. We are taking the best of care of him and will continue to do so until he is quite recovered at which time he will no doubt recieve a furlough and transportation for home. I shall be glad to write you or have some one do it so long as your father is unable to write.

Yours Truley, Anna Lantz
