Letter about suspicious German school opening.
World War I; Germans; Schools; Religion; German Language.
This is a letter to a Dr. H.L. Avery asking him to investigate a German School that opened in Sanborn, IA. Metcalf suspects that it might be a cover to teach secular subjects in German language which is illegal but asks to check them out and make sure they are only teaching religious subjects.
