Letter and an ink drawing from Sam Groff to his parents in Ridgefield, Washington. In 1917, Groff was in Vallejo, California, probably in naval basic training since he mentions standing in line for hours waiting to "draw clothes" and the sailors having to wait to eat until the electricians were finished in the mess hall. He includes a blue ink sketch of a sailor holding a bottle of rum with the caption "Old Masterpiece by Rum Brandy, A Full Sailor."
