Dear Sir:
I don't know if I could be called a survivor of the Johnstown Flood or not, but I can remember many things that I saw at that time. One was my aunt making pies for Clara Barton when she was expecting the head officials of the Red Cross to come here to help her.
My father was a member of the National Guards at the time of the Flood and I have two pictures that was taken of the guards at that time.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Walter A. McCall
