Streeter, Edward: Dere Mable (illustrated). v1. 09 August 2012
By Edward Streeter (1891-1976), author of “Father of the Bride,” “That’s Me All Over, Mable,” “Same Old Bill, eh Mable!” “As You Were, Bill!” etc.
The best selling book of 1918. For genuine humor nothing written in recent years surpasses these letters from a “simple soldier” to his best girl. Read them — and live with the rookie through all his perplexities, through all his amusements, through all his work, live with him and laugh with him — and at him!
Written and illustrated by two men of the 27th Division while at Camp Wadsworth. —From the original publisher
Bill apparently hated school. Some of the humor of this book derives from his very creative spelling, and the reader might be well-advised to treat it as though reading dialect. The text is enhanced by 35 full-page cartoon illustrations.
A couple of excerpts:
