I will endeavor to answer your
sweet letters that I received today
and was sure glad to hear from you
I get aIwfully lonesome sometimes
and a letter from home helps mo ev
er so much. One thr,t have never been
away from home can't appreciate lit
te thimgs of that kind, it give one
a pleasan t feeling just to know that
someone still remembers them at
hole, especially over here where life
is just a gamnble, and sympathy and
sentilieit is a stranger.
