(Extract from a letter of Charles E. Fink, Jr. to his father)
Owen, Wisconsin, Jan. 29th, 1915.
“My Dear Father:
I have been on the jump so much for the past week and the train service has been so poor that I did not know what my address would be for three or four days ahead, so could not let you know.
The weather has been terribly cold here during the past week. So cold that the trains are from an hour to five hours late, causing me to miss many connections and lose quite a bit of time. For three days it was about twenty-five below zero, and yesterday morning it was 46 degree below. And I had to get up at four o’clock to catch a five o’clock train. This morning it was 5 o’clock to catch another train, but it only registered twenty below then.
