* Postcard above reads:  Sept. 13, 1918  Dear folks at home.  Have looked long for a letter. M. (Magnus) got his hand hurt at the factory a week ago and they had to amputate his first finger.     He has been up to the hospital since Tues. and it had been lonesome for D. (K. Douglas) and I.  We are going to get him today if he feels able to come home. - Grace
