Frankfurt postcard sent to M/M CJ Uible - April 22, 1954
Frankfurt – April 22, 1954
We stopped in Karlsruhe for lunch yesterday, looked in the City Directory and there is a Fritz Uebel which the hotel man said was the German way of spelling Uible*.  Also saw the Black Forest.  Lot of American soldiers here and English is spoken lots of places.  German food is reasonable and abundant servings even for me.  Had a 50¢ tureen of soup last  night which we couldn't finish.  Are going up the river toward Cologne today to St. Goar.  Two American Express letters from E.J. [Elizabeth Johnson] mailed 4/4, received 4/9.  [– Harold]

*More on the Uible name history and German roots soon.  Stay tuned!
