(( Inscribed 1918 Letter ))

July. 1918.
Mother. dear.

Do not worry over me. I'm
alright and tell all my friends
that I died happy. I just was
shot and know that I will die so
goodbye all. Let God bless you.
I cannot write no more. I am
too weak.

Your son.

Louis Tabor wrote this letter
to his mother Susan Tabor of
Columbus from a hospital bed
in France hours before he died
of wounds suffered in a World
War I battle.
