MARIAN H. THMONPSON MADE
THE SUPREME SACRIFICE
The Sunday News has received the
following letter from Mrs. D. I.
Thompson, of Jordan, S. C.:
"February 4, 1919.
"Gentlemen: I am enclosing a let
ter from France I received today,
February 4, the very first news I
have had since I received on Novem
ber 19 a telegram stating that my
son, Marion H. Thompson, had been
killed in action on October 7. I wish
you would publish it in The News and
Courier and ask that The State and
The Manning Times copy it."
The letter from R. A. Fulp, captain
Company E, 118th infantry follows:
Record of a Fearless Man.
"Somewhere in France, December
"Mrs. Thompson, Olanta, S. C.
"Dear Mrs. Thompson: I will here
take the privilege of saying a few
words in esteem of your son Marion
II. Thompson. Ile was a member of
this company, Company E, 118th in
fantry, and one that we are all proud
to boast of.
"Your son was a soldier, absolutely
fearless and one who could be de
pended upon in any emergency. When
there was a call for volunteers for
dangerous arduous tasks, Marion was
always the very first one to step for
ward. Ile had not an atom of fear
in his whole being. On the other
S' hand he was so fearless that his very
presence put courage in his comrades
and gave them strength to endure and
do things that they would have
flinched at had not such a noble ex
ample of fearlessness been set by
your son. Ile is one of the men who
have helped so much in making for
this company the enviable record that
it now holds.
"I was often on duty with your
son and have never found him lack
ing. At one time there was a very im
port: .it message to be sent to brigade
headquarters, and the route lay
through a shell swept area. Marion
volunteered to deliver this message
and bravely carried it through a veri
table hell of shell-fire, safely deliv
ered it anl returned smiling, for any
other task that awaited him. At an
other time there was a party goin,
up to take part in a raid on the
German trenches. The commander of
that party started out and there was
Marion right with him asking if ha,
might go along. I could cite to you
several cases of the bravery and will
ingness of your son, but these two
ES will give you an idea of his work.
Gave Evidence of His Strong Patriot
nsk "I have seen him stay continuously
ent on duty for forty-eight hours without
Ja- a whimper, and during the whole time
devote his whole self to the task then
re- in hand. Also he hai a very strong
raw feeling of patriotism which was
to evinved in a remary that he made to
the me one (lay. We were passing through
a ruined villag'e of l'rance, when he
e, turned to me and said, "Lieutenant, I
an had rather (lie ten deaths than to see
rm- one town in A merica ruined as th is
of "No, M rs. Thomplson, I knoww that
ian your heart is hea vy with sorrow at
ere the loss of th is hoy, hut let us hole
ld Ithat this sorrow is supereedled by the
I5nslorious fact thamt yourm son, Marion
ject HI. Thompson, heard his call to dluty
and gave his life in thme cause (of hut
I bly inanit y, andI that. peace shouhi reign
ron this earth. It, should not he wvith
ried sorrowv that you should look on your
the sn's deathI but with am feeling of pride
