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.

The writer uses the name β€œThe Old Mountaineer.” Also includes Raising the Curtain on Neisler, February 1945, a reprint of Esso Oilways, and some photographs.
