    Lawrence writes to Jesse to thank him for sending letters and the Speed-O-Meter. They have the day off and have been spending it washing and rolling clothes for seabag inspection tomorrow. There are other local boys staying in the same area. This letter is part of the Jesse G. Dorsey Korean War Correspondence collection. Dorsey was the Director of Recreation and Welfare and editor of the Speed-O-Meter newsletter for the Louisville Cement Company. Dorsey began sending monthly letters and the Speed-O-Meter to local service personnel during WWII. He continued this through the Korean War and for sometime afterwards. less
