Letters to military personnel during World War II. Some of the responses from the recipients are included in the next letter sent. This was a “newsletter” program begun at the Neisler Mills to provide news of the mill and people in the employment of the mill to the military men overseas. It was an attempt to keep up the home town connection for the service men. It presents some of the history of Neisler Mills activities during the years 1942–1945. The writer uses the name “The Old Mountaineer.” Also includes Raising the Curtain on Neisler, February 1945, a reprint of Esso Oilways, and some photographs.
