A Soldier's Lttnent Jerome (Jerry) Hardgrove, son of Mrs. Fern Hardgrove, Algona, now serving at sea with the navy, wrote a letter to his mother a la poetic meter, as follows: Can't write a thing, The censor's to blame, Just say that I'm well And sign my name. Can't tell where we sail from Nor mention the date, And can't even number The meals that I "ate." Can't say where we're going, Don't know where we'll land, Couldn't inform you If met by a band. Can't mention the weather, Can't say if there's rain, All military secrets Must-secrets remain. Can't have a flash light To guide me at night, Can't smoke a cig Except out of sight. Can't keep a diary For such is a sin, Can't keep the envelopes Pour letters come in. Can't say for sure folks Just what I can write, So I'll call this a letter And close with "Good night." —Jerry. W.
