I do not know what these are. Perhaps they are tiny little postcards or something but on this first page, Grandpa wrote, ” The present line of defence of the U.S.N. ” Yes, he spelled it with a “c”. I would have used an “s”. I googled the difference and it said that the difference is that one is with a “c” and one is with an “s”. Haha!
The top right photo, I believe, is too hard to read, at least for me. I magnified it and it reads as follows: “Admiral R.E. Coontz U.S.A. Commanding. United States Battle Fleets.” Then, on the other side of the photo, it reads: “S. S. Robison Admiral U.S.A. Commander In Chief Battle Fleet.”
