 File — Box: 4265.001, Folder: 50

Scope and Contents

This file contains five air mail letters to Mrs. Helen Rocco of Vineland, New Jersey. Two, dated April 14 and 21, 1963, are from Martin Bostrom in Orebro, Sweden. Bostrom writes to Rocco about mailing "covers" and "announcements," and about an "Exhibition" Rocco might attend. He also indicates that it is difficult for him to write in English, and calls himself "your great admirer here in Sweden." The other three letters, dated 1966, 1968, and 1974, are from a friend in Ollerup, Denmark. They discuss daily life and stamp collecting.
