"FATHER DIED THIS MORNING" Aug 24, 1928
I found this Western Union Telegram envelope today at my Grandmother's house in the desert. This letter is from my Great Uncle Emmet, who lived in Detroit, to my Great Grandfather, living in Los Angeles, telling him of my Great Great Grand Father's death. I think that Western Union charged by the word. That might be why the message is so brief and to the point. It could also be that there is not much else to say between two brothers when it comes to their father's death. 1145 Arizona Ave is right off Olyimpic just east of the 710 and 5 freeway intersection.
