Reproductions of two propaganda letters
Caption: Right- The reproduced letter on the back of this sheet was written by a Japanese Navy Ensign on an American battleship in thanks for the warm treatment awarded him and his subordinates. Left-Sickness infallibly accompanies war. Bombs destroy the water supply & wire communications leading to a shortage of food and therefore you will grow sickly and weak. Moreover medicine cannot be bought easily and recovery becomes difficult. After bombings a country becomes dirty and the prevention of diseases becomes difficult. Stop this unnecessary suffering. Demmand the suspension of this war to the militarists who started the war.
