A handwritten letter from Jewel D. Kennemer to Gretchen Howell. In this letter, Kennemer writes that he has received copies of the East Texan newspaper and comments on general changes in East Texas. He asks about his previous colleagues who worked at the East Texas State Teachers College Library. Kennemer also describes his work in the Army and how he believes many soldiers have been let down by the home front, perhaps because of coal strikes organized by John L. Lewis.
