Receives Letter From Her
Somewhere in France.
September 23, 1918. '
My Dear Mother and All:
I haven't heard from vou lately
but I'll write anyway. I'm going to
try to write a little bit anyway at
least twice a week-to you all, 'cause
I know how bad I want to hear from
We are having some bad weather at
present but you see we don't mind
that much because we don't have to
get out in it. It isn't very cold but
it's quite rainy. It seems that once it
starts raining it doesn't want to stop.
And I must admit it kind o' gives a
fellow a little blues-specially when
we can only get our mail about every
week or ten days- But I got a card
this morning-I wish you could read
it. Maybe when I ever get back to
the States I will let you read it. (You
see it's in French.) Anyway, I'll tell
you how I came to get it. When we
first came to' this village of course
everybody, but more especially the
little folks, were alway sticking
around the soldiers. And there was
one little girl just six years old who
lived right across from us who was
just beautiful. She reminded me a
lot of Stewart Boyd and I took a
particular fancy to her. Now she and j
a sister ( 15 years old ) and a brother
about 12 were visiting their aunt'
here. Of course, after a while I more
or less "fell" for her older sister. Now j
they left their aunt's here, and went j
back to their mother's, quite a dis- (
tance from h?re, and today I have
just received, a very sweet card from
the older sister with the names and
best wishes of the other two. Now
you Krfow that made me feel pretty
good. I don't guess I will .ever see
anything of them again but I am go
ing to try to write them a cafd.
How is Papa getting along with
the gin? I want to know all about
what he is doing and how he is doing
it. And next time you write tell me
where Louise is and give me Fletch
er's address and tell him to write to
me. The rascal, I haven't heard from
him since I've been over here, and I
havn't'heard from you all savin ir i
that you had received the card say- j
inp that we had landed safely but I
am sure you have received it long
before new. You should have receiv
ed it about the 23rd of August and
the last letter I have from you was
dated the 22nd of August.
We still remain at the same place
and don't much want to leave. The j
band especially is billeted so well that j
[ for one certainly don't want to
leave here. -,-.H^U ...... j
Well, "Mums" I believe I've told
yon about all the news. All the band
Doys are well with thc exception of a
few colds. Othewise everybody is well
md happy. Must close now and go to
linner. Oh, by the way, I wish I
..ould send Papa something for his
iirthday but I don't see how I can
low. Tell him, anyway, I "ain't" for
rot he gets a birthday once a year.
Maybe I can get something through
:or him. Heaps and heaps of love and

Italy Expresses Admiration of
American Y. M. C. A.
Rome, October-Italy's King and
tier Commissary General have paid
high tribute recently to the aid which
American civilian agencies gave in
strengthening the morale and fight
ing power of the Italian troops, it has
just been announced. King Victor
Emanual sent a message to Dr. E. C.
Carter, director of all overseas Y. M.
C. A. work, as the royal contribution
to the United War Work Campaign
of the Y. M. CW., Y. W. C. A., Na
tional Catholic War Council,?K. of C.,
War Camp Community Service, Jew
ish Welfare Board, American Libra
ry Association and Salvation Army.
The King's message was as follows !
"To offer something to the soldier
at war facing the enemy is not only
a. brotherly thought of graciousness
and of kindness, but also a powerful
means to keep their minds in all
hours vigilant, prompt and courage
'ous. To have given this institution so
groat a development is worthy of the
American people who thus illustrate
again that in their genius a sense of
the ideal allies itself admirably with
an essentially practical mind.
(Signed) Vittorio Emanuele."
V. Zacconc, Commissary General of
the Italian Army made the following
"I take pleasure in expressing my
great admiration of the philanthrop
ic work accomplished by the Ameri
can Y. M. C. A. with the mobilized
Army, both in the granting of large
and generous financial aid to the al
ready existing Italian 'Case del Sol
dato' and in the establishment of ma
ny new 'Case,' in which your enthu
siastic and able associates co-operate
actively in the prent work of civil
and military aid. I am greatly pleased
to observe how thas-3 'Case' increase
benefits to our brave troops at the
battle front have already realized the
efficacy promised by the noble ini
tiative of our American friends.
"The victorious counter-offensive
on the Piave has also clearly demon
strated the utility of the comfort
distributing stations established by
the Y. M. C. A. in immediate contact
with the battle lines, and this new
organization, which gives the Amer
ican Association further title to gra
titude, has received enthusiastic rec
ognition from the troops who were
thus given new evidence even during
the bloodiest days of battle that they
could count on the noble help and
comfort of their American brothers."
The 'Case del Soldato' are the It
alian equivalent of the Y. M. C. A.
