A Letter from Paul Taylor

Dear Liz, it’s been half a year since our last exchange, but I have finally found indisputable evidence that Alice DeLamar was not driving in France during WWI. First, she was a member of the Red Cross women’s motor corps, which  did not go to France but did domestic duty throughout the war in the U.S., particularly during the 1918 flu outbreak (see Red Cross History). Secondly, I have seen a letter from Alice that she wrote in early 1919 (her father died on 1 December 1918), asking for a visa so she could go to France and find her mother. In the letter, she writes that she has not been in France since 1914. Best, Paul
