The wartime service on the Western Front of Edward Clarkson Potter (1862-1950), born in New York City. At the age of fifty five, he sailed from France on the Touraine, 29 December 1917. A majority of the letters are written to his daughter, Lily, but the selection also includes the text of letters and circulars received by him in France, and translations of speeches he made, all in French. At the end are documents relating to his award of the Croix de Guerre in 1919. A scarce title.
