Herbert J. Metcalf to H. L. Avery, Jan. 15, 1918
Education; German Language; Religion; Sanborn, Iowa; World War I
This is a letter from Herbert J. Metcalf to H. L. Avery who has been called to attention about a German school starting up in Sanborn, Iowa where nothing but German is being taught. He has asked Avery to investigate more into the situation secretly. If the school is found organized for unpatriotic reasons then they will need to take legal action. If the school is organized with the intentions of teaching religion, then nothing can be done about it.
