The pictures show views of the 1941 World War II Children's Hospital War Relief Letter, a Flyer, Envelope, Photographs, and a small box with a cement fragment. This packet was sent from Lord Southwood Chairman of The Hospital for Sick Children of London, England to the President of The Chatham Manufacturing Company of New Haven, Connecticut. There is a Boston, Massachusetts Customs stamping on the envelope as well as a British postage stamp.

The letter is dated October 15th, 1941. The letter and its contents are a plea for help because the Children's Hospital had been bombed by Adolph Hitler. The two sided letter explains the situation as does the enclosed flyer, three photographs, and a small matchbox containing a cement fragment from the bombing. The three photographs and the small box are marked as follows:

The hole in the roof of the Hospital For Sick Children Great Ormond Street, London, W.C.1., caused by a Nazi H.E. Bomb.

One of the wards of the Hospital For Sick Children Great Ormond Street, London, W.C.1., damaged by a H.E. bomb. Over L50,000 worth of devastation was caused.

Little patients being evacuated from the Hospital For Sick Children Great Ormond Street, London, W.C.1., after it had received a direct hit - everyone was saved and the hospital carries on.

Look in this box!
It contains a little of the rubble that was once part of The Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, before it was bombed.
Please, PLEASE help!

To judge the sizes the envelope measures 9'' x 4-1/2''. The envelope has wrinkling and wear from being mailed and handled. Everything else appears to be in excellent condition as pictured.
