America’s Gift of Toys

“There was an unusual scene in the Council Chamber of the Town Hall [today] when, by the kind permission of the Mayor of Limerick, and in his presence, nearly 400 wives of soldiers and sailors serving at the front, with the Fleet, or in training, assembled to receive gifts for their children from the children of the United States of America, and from Limerick friends”
