TWO letters from Albert Harvey Huston (born 18 April 1892 Cannelton, Perry County, Indiana - grew up in Waveland, Montgomery County, Indiana


Globe, AZ May 9, 1926 -- Dear Nellie (his sister)

You should see our roses now the red and white roses climbs on the house are doing their stuff the bush roses are just starting and all this at no extra cost as it has rained so much we haven't had to pay more than the minimum so far. May be it will continue. We got lots of stuff besides the roses but Virginia would have to tell what they are, I think alive to the yard being rather small things are but there sleep. Myself I am not the gardener last week I put in my evening out hauling the oil stove, preparing for Summer. So far we are more than glad to have a fire in the kitchen range. But I guess before long summer will be with us. This is my labor day Sunday that is it is a holiday but I have to spend it at the plant. Tomatoes all we are puting out today. Work isnt a pressing now as it has been for the last three months. You remember I told you that the Federal bid was puting in a mile of cement paving thru Globe. So far they have three blocks finished. I guess it is going to take all summer. The $150,000 City Bond past, the bond were to be sold last Wens, Tues night the Town dads found that they also for bids in the hand was printed wrong so have to be readone. So our pavement wont start for that much longer. The $150,000 is for five miles of cement paving 18 ft wide. What does Mial think of that for price? We eat again this fall - as we now have 11 baby chicks and maybe we clebrate Thanksgiving as we have six Turkey eggs setting. We have been staying close to home the last two weeks so theres not much to write about. We have a small trip planned for next Sunday weather permitting so should be able to do better next time. Both of us are doing fine weather one having any tooth trouble Best. So long, Albert


USS North Dakota Ė Brooklyn NY (perhaps March 1914 ?) Dear Nellie (his sister)Ė Summer has hit here yet. Yesterday was a nice day, but this morning the ground was covered with snow and it has been snowing all day. But we have hopes of spring getting here some time, at least we kill spare time talking baseball. I am going to try to play base ball again this year. As laying around the ship doesnít agree with me, and I donít like the idea. And besides the baseball team goes ashore in the afternoons, while thereís no liberty parties until six oíclock. I prefer to get on dry land once in a while in day light. The only people I hear from now days out side of the family is Logan Moore, of Cíville and Dagmar, w ho at present is playing in and around Boston. I get two letters a week from her brother letter from different places. They play in one place the first part of the week and another the last part. So I get mail from nearly every town in New England. Last week I heard from Lewiston and Portland ME. It keeps the gang guessing because they donít know how I happen to know so many people here in the East. Logan seems to be having a rather dull time in collage due to the fact that he doesnít have as much money as some others and canít run around as much. I was vaccinated again last week but it didnít take. The ships company was vaccinated preparing for the summer in Mexico. I guess we will be getting all kinds of dope from now on. Well I ... worry as long as the preventive doesnít kill them a slim chance of the real thing being as bad. It certainly is great the way these navy doctors vaccinate, one doctor can vaccinate 60 men an hour. The work on the ship is coming along fast now, so I guess we will get out of here by the middle of April. I often wonder how I will like going to sea again. Say, what happened to Green, Lamb and the other? I havenít heard much about them lately. Did the March lion kill the Lamb and freeze the Green stuff? What is WHS going to do in the base ball line this year, and has the scrap started over speech at commencement? So long, Albert
