The collection consists of 12 V-mail
letters written to and collected by George "Geo" Hennessey between 1943 and 1944. The
letters are written to both Geo and his wife, Peg, who were living in Brooklyn, New York at
the time. The correspondents include Peg's brothers Lyle Claussen, Harry Claussen and an
undecipherable name that could be "Kermit" Claussen, as well as Imrie Anderson. The letters
discuss daily life in the war as well as commentary on news from the homefront.
