Notes
-  "A letter from sweetheart." "A soldier is parted from his bride, and goes off to war. She tearfully asks him to send letters, until God brings him safely back to her. Alas, she reads his last letter. He has died in battle, a hero." Issued in 1915 as a song about the soldier families in Europe, this song was reprinted for sale after the United States entered the war in 1917.
