Bill is most likely Esther's first cousin William F Elliott, son of C. R. Elliott. [C R Elliott was the brother of Harriet Elliott.] William Elliott wrote Esther a number of postcards and letters over the years. Typically, he signed his name W F Elliott and sometimes Will Elliott. However, the handwriting here is remarkably similar to postcards you will see in the future. W F Elliott was in the military and many of the postcards sent to Esther were from areas where he served or visited.
