NOTES FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES 5/28/1918:
========================================

BROOKLYN MEN WOUNDED.

J. A. Holland, Jr., and William Kearns on
Casualty List.

Private James A. Holland, Jr., named in yesterday's
casualty list from General Pershing as among those
severely wounded in action, is a son of Mrs. James 
A. Holland of 101 Lincoln Place, Brooklyn.  He is 
in the regular army and is with one of the engineer
units, supposed to be on the Picardy front.   Mrs.
Holland received a telegram yesterday announcing 
that her son was wounded on May 15.  She also 
received a letter from him yesterday written on May
5.
"If my boy has been permanently disabled I want him
sent home," Mrs. Holland said, "but if he is not so
seriously hurt and recovers I want him to fight on,
for it is a good cause.  I have another boy who is 
going into the army next week, and in doing so he
is doing exactly what I want him to do."

Another Brooklyn boy reported severely wounded in
yesterday's list is Private William Kearns, a son
of Mrs. Margaret Kearns, like Holland, is in the 
employ of the Long Island Railroad before the war
and enlisted the day that Congress declared war.
He went to France with the first division of
regular troops to follow General Pershing overseas.
