“I feel that it is fortunate that I arrived before it is too late to get a real impression. The changes are taking place rapidly and even in the short time I have been here I can see a great change. In another few months there will be very little trace of war... There is nothing in any way amusing about seeing this devastated country; indeed it is one tragedy after another.”

[Mary Riter Hamilton, letter to The Gold Stripe, May 1919]
