Note that Crosby sold blank envelopes to military base PX's so that servicemen could obtain envelopes to enclose letters to home.

From Ken Lawrence: "U.S. Naval Air Station Midway was commissioned 1 August 1941. Philippine Clipper arrived 15 August and departed 16 August on its inbound flight to Honolulu and San Francisco. Honolulu Clipper called 31 July and August 1, date of the NAB commission, on its outbound flight to Manila, and collected your cover on its return flight, which arrived Midway on 1 September and departed the next day on its flight back to San Francisco."
