This chapter focuses on Willis H. James and his correspondence. Willis enlisted in the U.S. Army in the fall of 1899. After his discharge he lived briefly in New York, but soon changed his name to Leon (L. J.) St. Clair and began to wander. Willis changed names, addresses, and jobs so often his family frequently lost track of him. However, the one consistency in his otherwise unstable life was his continued devotion to Bertha and his little sister Louise.
