The Davis Christmas Card
This is a Christmas card my dad received when he was in New Calendonia during World War II with CASU7. The sender was his best friend and brother-in-law’s mother Esther Levy Davis. Her son James E Davis was in the Marines and as she said, “in the South Sea Islands”.
This card must have meant a great deal to my dad since he kept it, brought it home and Mom and Dad saved it for posterity. I’m so glad they did. It’s sad to me that I never got to meet Essie Davis, but when I was of grade school age I do remember going to Coleman and Louise Davis’ house. Louise was Coleman’s second wife, and as I remember, a great gal. Read her note to my husband and you can see what a loving lady she was.
