How about a round box? I have in my possession a round box mailed by Robert W. Levering from the Philippines during World War II, to my aunt, who worked for the Federal Register in Washington, D.C. Robert, who married my aunt upon returning from the war, was a Japanese prisoner of war from 1942 to 1945. He was an Ohio lawyer, congressman and author, having written “Horror Trek,” the true story, his story, of 76,000 American and Filipino soldiers forced on the infamous 80-mile Bataan Death March. Thousands of men died of starvation, thirst or were murdered before reaching their destination. The fiber Mandalay Coconut Syrup box is undated. It was likely mailed in 1942 before his capture. An assortment of a dozen colorful cancelled stamps enabled the box to arrive safely from Manila to “Miss Eileen Burdick, 444 Old House Office Bldg., Washington, D.C. U.S.A.” I find beauty in the organic make up of the box, and mystery in what a young soldier would have shipped to his sweetheart on the other side of the world. I doubt it was coconut syrup.
