In a letter to his mother in Hammond, IN Fred Storer relates his experience in the Panama Canal Zone, where he has killed a hog, a seventeen foot snake and some pretty birds. He is glad to hear none of his family is sick from influenza, having read of John Skrabala and Edna Bishop’s death from the outbreak.
