 File — Box: 1, Folder: 1
From the Collection:

In this letter to his sister Sadie, Thomas Sleeper writes of the monotony of his training in Nashville, Tennessee. He tells of a trip to Louisville, Kentucky on a weekend leave where he was surprised to see that the leaves had not yet turned colors or begun to fall from the trees as they had in Nashville. He writes that there were still uncommonly large flowers blooming.
