Turvey Is Enlisted
Number Eight was a drawing of an envelope addressed to Mr. John Brown, 114 West 78th., New York, N.Y. It had a New York postmark but no stamp. The squeaky sergeant had told them to draw in the missing part of each picture. Turvey licked his pencil point and tried to recall whether King George had a beard.
He had finished the stamp, except for one edge of perforation, when he remembered the American postmark. It ought to be George Washington.
