November 28. Ill 18,
While I was Hitting
here watching the rain fall so beauti
fully my mind ban diifted back to
i year ago today, while with my wife
we ttcte seated aioiind my mother'
table with a large turkey in the cen
tre, ami today I am aliiioul five thmir,
and miles away in a foreign country.
Hut I thought I wduld take a few
moments of my leisure time and
write you and tell you all a few of
many experience, since I have land
ed in France. I nhall begin with
July 31 Ht. While torrents of rain
were beating down upon the parched
earth, we were called out with our
full equipment and about six o'clock
we bid farewell to our comrades in
Camp bee and otarted through rain
and water for the port. After bik
ing about eight miles we arrived at
City Point, there the 111 Cro-H i
sued U!-plentyf hot eofT-e, chewing
gum and cigarette, and believe me,
they wero nurely appreciatt rl, for we
had had nothing to eat for several
hour and were wet through. Wh
took a small boatabout JO o'clock that
Highland drifted down the liver t
Newport News and landed about
ten the next morning. Thai after
noon we ascended the eang plank of
a large station transport and about
an hour afterwanU that great mass
of steel wai shoved out in the briny
deep. You cannot imagine the in
ipiration as land grew dimmer and
dimmer, till at last we found our
selves surrounded by bin" water and
(ierman subs. We were attacked on
each of the following davs, respect
ively, 3rd, 6th, 7th and 11th. I do
not have time to' go into detail about
ach but shall give u few dut.iils of
our attack on the 11th of August. I
was down in my birth when all at
nice, a tremendous cannonading be
'an and I rushed up and climbed up
m one of tbe large derricks and wit
nessed one of the fiercest h.tll'es on
water. Ojr ship wan fortunate
enough to escape without a scratch
but our sister ship just on our right,
received a large torpedo and began
to flounder but was hastily towed in
with the other ves""'" The battle
lasted about two b . o or more and
we were tbe conquerors, for what
subs were not sunk sneaked away in
old German style. About five hours
later we cast anchor and waited for
daylight to enter tho magnificent
Harbor of Brest, which wo did the
next forenoon. Then on the after
noon of the 12th, we decended tho
gang plank'and started in a hike for
a rest camp, and reached it about
sunset. It was ono of Napoleon's
old camps where his famous troops
several years before, had trodden.
After spending a week there we left
for a rail head and late in the even
ing we stepped aboard a western
bound train, and after two days and
nights anived at the Classification
Camp near St Aganian on the 20th
day of August- That afternoon wo
started again and hiked till about
night when we arrived at an old
French barn, just about famished
with heat for it was ono of France's
hotest days- St) we soon fell asleep
and were awakened by tho clear nous
of a distant bugle. As the sun was
just appearing up over an E intern
city we started up for breakfast.
But unfortunately for mo I had con
tracted tho Spanish Iiill tcuzi and
waa sent to a hospital while my out
fit went to the front. After spend
ing twenty days there, celebrating
my 23rd birthday the second day of
my sojourn in the hospital, I loft
there on the 10th of September and
went back to theClassifiualion Camp.
I spent a few days there and in an
adjoining camp. Then we started
for the front again,, and after a bike
of several kelometers we took a box
car and rode for.two more days and
nights and arrived at Chatellon, Sur
Seine, where we still are stationed, a
few miles back of where the liue

THE FAITHFUL ANEROID.
A pilot left his aerodrome for n
cross-country flight on a very misty
da', nnd carefully set his aneroid.
After flying for a couple of hours by
compass he thought he must be Hear
ing his destination. He could see
nothing below him nnd so descended
to 500 feet. On ho flew nt this
height for another five minutes. De
riding to land, he was about to make
a magnificent volplane, when sud
denly the mist cleared and he saw
tho ground immediately underneath
him, about ten feet below. His
faithful aneroid still insisted that
he was 500 feet high. The explana
tion lay in the fact that the place
where he was about to land was 500
feet higher a hove sea level than the
aerodrome whence he set out. Trifles
