World War I
Letter of condolence re Floyd Press:
Fortress Ehrenbreitstein, Germany
April 9, 1919
My Dear Mrs. Press:
Yesterday I received a letter inquiring about the death of your son, Floyd, who was
in my battery.
Floyd was taken to the hospital on February 7th, suffering from a heavy cold, and on
the 11th he passed away, having contracted pneumonia.
He death caused much sorrow among his many friends in the battery, for he was a fine man
and a good soldier.
I sincerely sympathize with you in your loss, Mrs. Press, and I am deeply sorry that it
is impossible for a soldier as loyal as your son to return to the States with his regiment.
Floyd was buried from Evanston hospital, No. 2, at Coblenz, Germany.
You may be proud of the fact that he served his country well during the war and that he is
listed as "Dead in the line of duty."
Again I wish to express my sorrow for we lost a fine soldier when your son left us.
Capt., 17th F. A. Battery E.
