Content Description

This collection contains one correspondence from an unknown author signed "Boom" written in Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii preceding the Second World War. "Boom" was serving on a ship in the United States Navy and was writing to his sweetheart in San Diego on Easter Sunday. He mentioned buying her some gifts from Honolulu and seeing a program at the YMCA, having beers, with a friend named Chappel. He mentioned coming home soon, but it may take some time once he gets in because he is in charge of the ship's compass.
