My Toor husband was kilterl In tho
battle of the Marnc at E.sternay, the
6th of September, 1914. I received
the official notice of his death the
Gin of August 1915. I was thus a
whole year without news.
Before the war my husband was a
street-ender in the city. Since our
misfortune we have returned to live
with my father who is sixty nine
years old. He works at odd jobs or
in houses, and when there are funer
als he acts as casket bearer, poor
father he works so hard that, my
three little children may have bread.
My eldest, my big pirl. is ten years
old and has very good health. My
ninp years old son is deaf, but my lit
tle girl of six is quite well. They all
go to school.
Once more please thank those kind
friends who so generously bold out
to us a helping hand. I shall think
it a pleasure as well as a duty to
answer them each time they wish me

"Where is my papa?" Mamma always
answers: "They have taken him
from us my poor child." Yes they
