Janesville Settlement (17 Oct 1918)

Private Arnold Halle was buried on Friday afternoon instead of Tuesday, as we stated last week. The body did not arrive here as soon as expected, and owing to Spanish influenza and diphtheria in Greenwood, the military services were cancelled until later. The minister from Greenwood gave a beautiful sermon, which touched all the hearts. The singing was by the West Eaton Glee Club. S. Racoby, a soldier, came with the remains.

Anna and Sophia Waseca called on Mrs. C. Hatton Sunday evening.

M. Bahl was a business caller at J. Halle’s Sunday evening.

We have another new Red Cross member, Mrs. J. Saulmerson. Every lady in the school district is invited to attend these meetings.

A very interesting letter from Private Albert Susa of France was received by Mr. and Mrs. Clark Hatton last week. It took just a month for the letter to reach here. Albert asked to be remembered to all his J.S. friends.
