Christmas Packages to
Boys In France
The following letter just received
by Mrs. Frank Baldwin regarding
Christmas packages for the boys in
France will be of general interest to
all who have relatives or friends with
the Allied Expeditionary Forces over
seas: November 10, 1918,
Mrs. Frank Baldwin,
My dear Mrs. Baldwin:
You undoubtedly have iPnd in the
papers of the arrangements made by
the War Department for Christmas
parcels for the men in the American
Expeditionary Forces. The general
outline of the plan is this; as the
shipping space for Christmas parcels
is limited one man may receive only
one 'parcel. To make sure that each
parcel will be- correctly addressed, a
Christmas parcel label Is being (or
by now has been) issued to the men
overseas. These labels will be mailed
to some relative or fjlend who may
present it to the nearest Red Cross
Headquarters. On presentation of the
label a carton 3x4x9 will be issued.
No carton may be issued without a
label and in case a label is lost no
duplicate can be issued. "This rule
cannot be altered by anybody." When
the carton is packed the weight must
not exceed 3 pounds. Any combina
tion of articles may be put into the
carton which are not barred by the
Fost Office Department. The carton
must then be returned to the Red
Cross with the original label to be
inspected, wrapped and stamped, and
held for mailing. The Inspector's
name must go on the outside of the
box. The Rod Cross in held respon
sible and accountable for the con
tents of the box; therefore the In
spector must be firm but use the ut
most tact and kindness. These are
War Department .regulations which
must be followed for the American
Expeditionary Force in Europe only.
Tarcels sent to men in the Allied
forces in Europe may be sent by or
dinary parcels post via Canada, pro
viding there is nothing in them that is
on the export conservation list. Par
cels for the Navy may go by ordinary
parcels post to the weight of 7 pounds,
and parcels to the A. E. F. and Allien
Forces in Siberia may go' by ordinary
parcels post to the weight of 12
pounds. The Red Cros3 harfdles only
the parcels for the A. E. F in Europe.
One thousand cartons with directions
and information have just arrived in
Honolulu, which explains the appar
ently late information I am forward
ing to you. Can you, through your
Horn 3 Service Section, send me an
estimate of the number of men over
seas from your community as quick
ly as roasible, so that arrangements
iivy be ma'.le for pending you the car
tons and directions immediately. It
should be a careful estimate as there
is a limited number of cartons. To
my knowledge none of the labels have
been received vet bv individuals from
the men, but the Red Cross should be
ready to act at once when they are
presented. Even if the packages
should arrive in Europe after Christ
ma.i, I think the individuals will want
the joy of rending to their "boys'
overseas. If some one with a "boy'
over there does not receive a label,
suggest that a monev order be sent
as many things may bo bought in
Europe. I shall hope for a reply by
The cartons can he had from Mrs.
II. A. Bal '.win at the Home Service
room rr Mrs. Tnonison at The Red
Crops room Kahului.
