August 19, 1916

Isaac and Margaret had travel plans, but canceled them due to Margaret’s brother, Holden, being ill.  It is likely that they had planned to attend the National Grand Army of the Republic Encampment in Kansas City, Missouri from August 28th to September 2nd.  Being the 50th anniversary, it was probably important to Isaac because he kept the brochure.
