VICTORY AHEAD j
'ranee and Italy Will Be Reunited
With People Torn From Them
London, Oct. 22.?King George
eceived a large deputation of in- J
crparliamentary delegates at Buckngham
Palace yesterday. The depuations
included 30 British repreentatives,
22 from France, eight
rom Italy and one from Belgium.
"More than two years have passid,"
said the king, "since the first;
risit of the interparliamentary com-j
nittee of the French chambers, j
t ___ -1 0.1 1
vnen you ana we were in trie uiruesj
>f a conflict. The issue of which j
hen seemed to many foreign ob-j
iervers uncertain although you and
ve never doubted that our cause,
>eing the cause of right and humanty,
would prevail. Now the armies
>f France, Italy, Belgium, and the
Jnited States, side by side, with,
ours, are driving the enemy before
them, his forces shattered, his peo
pie clamoring for peace.
"Victory is within our reach. Ant
we are all agreed that it must be i
complete victory. I congratulate
you, senators and deputies of Italy
on the prospect which opens before
you of recovering the regions guard
ed by those Alpine snows where
your valiant soldiers have won sucl
glory?regions inhabited by men o:
your own race and speech, who have
long desired to be united to freec
"And I congratulate you, senator!
and deputies of France, on the ap
proaching restoration of provincei
torn from you 47 years ago, whicl
have never wavered in their lovini
attachment to France."
King George recalled that while
between Great Britain and Italj
there had always been peace, it wa!
once otherwise as to Great Britaii
and France who had waged many i
war in former centuries.
"But" he continued, "in those
days there was always on both side:
a spirit of chivalry which forbade
bitterness and when peace came ii
was made with a sense of mutua
respect. We, in England, have al
ways continued to admire the bril
liant gifts of France. Gladly owinf
our intellectual debt to her, as we
also our debt from even earliei
days to the versatile genius of Italy
"That respect and gratitude have
furnished a solid foundation for th(
affection which has now grown ui
between your nation and ours, con
centrated by the memory of the he
roes who have fallen fighting side b$
side in this war, animated by the
same devotion to their countries anc
justice, this affection and this memory
are pledges of our future concord.
Such concord and cooperation
will, we trust, become under the
blessing of providence a security foi
peace not only to our own people,
but to all free Europe, which is
longing to return to the paths oi
tranquility and progress.
"Ana you, sir, representative ui
the senators and deputies of Belgium,
we rejoice to see you also upon
your soil. Your country, wantonly
and wickedtly attacked and devastated,
has had terrible sufferings to
undergo, but the day of your deliverence
is at hand. The British people
which has felt for you through
those sufferings, has admired the
constancy and loyalty of your people
and the devotion of your soldiers
and earnestly wishes for you a return
of that prosperity which you
enjoyed, and which you gallantly
sacrificed at the call of duty."
LETTERS FROM ALL SIX.
By happy coincidence, there came
to Governor and Mrs. Manning yesterday
at the executive mansion, a
letter from each of their six soldier
sons?five from overseas, and also
one from their only daughter, Mrs.
Berkeley, who lives in New Orleans.
All the lads in khaki wrote cheerfully,
and especially gratified were
the parents to learn that young
John Adges has entered an officers'
training camp at Tours, France. And
doubtless no less gratified were they
at the news from Burrell Deas that
he has had a chance to take training
for a commission, but had refused to
enter a camp because it would remove
him for several months from
active fighting! The only son who
is on this side of the water is Vivian,
who has recently received his commission
and has been ordered to
Washington for duty under General
Mrs. Manning1, in addition to all
of her other patriotic activities, is

committee of the United War WorI<

LETTER FROM S. T. RUSSELL,
AN OCONEE BOY IN FRANCE
A. E. F., Sept. 2. 1918.
My-dear mother:?No, I'm neithei
sick nor wounded, have just beer
moving from one place to anothei
and have had so much to do I haven'1
had a chance to write for the pasl
few days. We moved from the artillery
camp just after I last wrote
you, to what is called the horse line,
just behind the artillery front lines
This move was about one thousand
kilometers, or nearly six hundred
miles. We came by rail road and il
; took us three days and nights on the |1
- road, llien the next day, part of I
the regiment went up on the front n
i and myself and four other men were I
i detailed with a doctor to go with him i
i to render medical aid. Can truly a
, say we have been where the big shells f
i roar and Whistle through the air over| t
your head day and night. But at ^ t
i that We are not in very^much danger, f c
i for we have fine dug-outs rind there,
f is no danger of either gas or shell (^
i While in them. I have only had to 3
1 wear my mask once for gas. Ameri-J
can and French airplanes are flying!
3 over the trenches most all the time.j
watching the different moves of the,
3 enemy and every time they hand us'
i anything we give them just a little
? bit more in return.
We were relieved from the front
' I yesterday by another squad of our
7 j men and now I am back to the horse
line resting up. xnis aiternoon i m
1 going to get a good hot shower bath
1 and a clean suit of clothes. All we
have to do is to go to the hath house
' j with an order from our commanding
3 officer, stating we are just back from
J the front lines and they will give us B
^ a hot bath and exchange our clothes 1
i for clean ones complete. I also had ^
" j a hot shower bath whlie at the front, I s
but didn't get clean clothes. j
[ Ralph Sholar and I are bunking together.
Back on this line we use our ?
pup tents and as soon as we get back 1
we worked about two hours to fix it: *
I up nice. We have it elevated so it t
I isn't so hard to get in, and then it,*1
) - le
! gives lots more room to keep ourr
| equipment in. We used oat sacks for
r! the sides to make it snug and warm, ?
%j and for the front we have an extra 0
11 shelter half to hang over it. Our,T
bed is fine. We use two stretchers, j
which elevates us about six inches t
from the ground. Then we put our ?
,jtwo heavy wool saddle blankets over d
Jthem first. We have three wool 3
blankets each; so after putting the r
, saddle blankets down, we spread two j e
i ! li
?'of our wool blankets, then with the-j(
four over us. This makes a bed v
. warm enough for the coldest kind r
of weather; My health has been fine
! ever since I've been over here. I
.1 truly believe this open air has done
!me good, for I feel so much better'
' than I did when I used to live in!
I those steam-heated hotels.
J I wish you could see my horse. |
i He is simply a beauty. He's as black' 1
1 as a crow, round bodied, weighs nine;
' hundred pounds, fat and slick as can'
i be and has the prettiest head and
,1 neck you ever saw on a horse. I
, picked him myself, and having had *
' previous experience with horses, I \
j know just how to pick one for myself ?
j out of a big lot of them. Our sadT ^
dies and part of our equipment were t
j lost on the way over and didn't show 1
up until a day or so ago. So we had ]
"j to draw new outfits. I wish you could ?
see my horse with all his new rigging jj
'j on him. We are going to turn in our 1
'l old stuff, which has just come, to the ?
j Q. M. and keep the new stuff that we n
; had drawn in the place of it. By the t
' j way, what do you think of us having *
a Victrola here on the front with us? q
It came in the box with some sad
dies. The boys are playing it now
, and all agree that it brings back t
, pleasant remembrances -of Camp ?
; | Sevier. All the boys are still with us
in fine spirits and having good health. I
1 All talk of how nice they were treat- J
ed by the Russell's while at Sevier a
' and long to meet them again. Bur- 11
' ger is here, too, asked to be remem- 'z
' bered to you all. Ralph is writing to '
* Louie, so when you write to him
please state that we are scarce of pa'
per here on the front just now and;
1 that I'll write to him and Jim both a
'i little bit later.
I notice in the papers where the
Si bill was passed taking men in the J
draft from age eighteen to forty-five.
| How is Irvine getting along at
j Camp? Is he still at Spartanburg?
j Tell him to write to me. Guess Kate j.
i is at home with you. The last letter t
j I received from you Mae was there. a
! I believe the letter was dated July 1
i 20th. Mae was fixing to go to New- p
1 port News to live. I hope to get a ?
! nf mail written the next few davs C
I know its in France for me, but since j,
l we've been moving around it hasn't s
i gotten to us. s
, I haven't been to Paris yet, but J
i: within the next two months I expect V
1 to get a furlough and go there. ! ?
J Ralph and I want to go together, a
! From what I have already seen of 0
, France I know Paris must be a won- a
.jderful place. We expect to stay h
1, there seven days when we go. On 8
[ ^ our way from the artillery camp we r
t; passed through some of the most e
leaotifal country in; tfie world.
Jeautiful lakes, canals, miles and
niles long, right, by the rail. road,
larks, and the best roads I ever saw.
Ml the roads over here practically
ire concrete, shaded by trees set perectly
in line on all them. We just
nissed Paris seven miles en route,

Hoping that this will find you all
