Harry's mother presented copies of the book to as many of his ambulance service comrades as possible. The above photo offers a glimpse of the book as well as two letters, each presenting the book to one of Harry's friends--Philip Shepley and Way "Spud" Spaulding. Shepley and Spaulding were members of the AFS unit SSU 71 which became, after the US Army took over in the Fall of 1917, SSU 641. Both figure prominatly in the book.
Also shown in the photograph is a American Field Service hat badge and a American Field Service medal.
