Rien a faire.
Received letter from Erlysman Pinckney Esq. of Highbury, Warminister, Wilts (shire)
I have the prevailing Spanish Influenza.
*World War I claimed an estimated 16 million lives. The influenza epidemic that swept the world in 1918 killed an estimated 50 million people. One fifth of the world’s population was attacked by this deadly virus. Within months, it had killed more people than any other illness in recorded history.
