To Mrs. G.N. Olmstead
The following letter was sent on the 25th of January, 1910, to a Mrs. G.N. Olmstead located somewhere in Boston. The RMS Caronia was a British ocean liner, capable of carrying 1,550 passengers, on which D.G. McFarlane, judging by his use of the ship’s stationary, was most likely a member of the crew. The RMS Caronia was launched on July 13, 1904, and had her maiden voyage on February 25, 1905. In 1916, she became a troopship, and served in WWI to the finish, at which point she returned to duty as an ocean liner. The RMS Caronia was sold for scrapping in 1932.
I’ve made an attempt at transcribing this letter here, but have had some difficulty in certain areas. I encourage anyone with an interest, and some free time, to help out. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any success. Thanks to friends who’ve helped with the transcription.
