Mrs. Alice Porter from her brother,
Corporal' Jessie D. Gillespie, who was
severely wounded some time ago and
was reported killed:
Hospital 46, Sus., Orne. France,
September 13, 1918.
Mrs. Alice Porter, Central, S. C.
Dear Sister: I will write you a few
lines in answer to your letter of Au
gust 9. I am getting along very well;
have had a cold but am better now.
I was transferred to another French
hospital the 4th of August. It is a
special hospital for fractured bones.
I am the only American here. One of
the doctors and my nurse and a few of
the soldiers can talk a little English.
My nurse is a Belgian; she sure is a fine
girl. I get good treatment here.
They are going to take my leg out of
extension the 25th and I can go walk
ing on crutches then. My hand is well
but it will be bad crippled. I guess I
will get to come home as I can't soldier
any more. I hope the war will soon be
over so all the boys can come home. I
sure would like to be over there to help
eat watermelons and go to meeting
with you. I've written you some cards
but I don't guess you got them. It is
a job to write left handed, so I will
close. Give my love to Jim and the
Your brother as ever,

My Dear Mother and Family:
I have not written you all in two
weeks, for I simply have not had time.
I have been on the ro all the time. I
have hiked nearly - over France with
a pack on my bac h Believe me, we
have been through .sime times.
I got two lette i last night from
Winnie Lee and y u-the first in two
weeks--but I guess I will get the rest
of my mail as we are now where we can
get it. I sure was proud to get the
two pictures, they are good. Marie
and Clara have grown so much I don't
think I would have recognized them if
I had met them on the street. Winnie
Lee, father and you are the same as
when I left home.
You guessed pretty close where I am.
I would like to tell you, but you know
that is impossible. I only stayed one
night in New York as I came over, so
you see I did not see very much of the
place. 1 have been over the top sev
eral times, but came out o. k. I feel
.that I am very lucky, for I have not
got a scratch. I will tell you of a little
incident which hoppened to some of us.
I had been up all night and had just
dropped off to sleep wvhen all of a sud
den machine guns began firing all
around us, and I never heard such yell
ing in all my life. Fritz was trying to
get at us from the rear, but what I am
talking about, there was not enough of
the Huns left to tell the tale. I saw
hundreds of Huns give up without firing
a shot. They threw off their helmets
and gas masks and said the war was
finished for them. They had their stuff
packed and were waiting for the Ameri
cans to come and take them prisoners.
They were young boys and men not
over thirty-five yoars old. I would like
to send you a German helmet for a

The following letter was received by
Mr. and Mrs. James J. Summey from
their son, Prvt. Harry B. Summey,
now with the American Expeditionary
Forces, somewhere in France:
Dear Mother: I will write you a few
lines this afternoon in answer to your
most welcome letter I received today.
Was sure glad to hear from you and to
know you were all well. I am well and
truly hope this will reach and find you
I have just returned from the front
and got a good rest last night and am
feeling fine today. I am sorry to hear
that Uncle Marvin has his finger cut
off. I can not tell the name of the
place where I am now for it is against
the censor's rules. We have been hav
idg a lot of rain but it is clear today.
Mother, I have been reported wounded,
but was not, so if you see my name on
the casualty list it is not true.
Why do not the folks, write to me?
I would be glad to hear from anmy of
them. I can't understand why you
have not received any letters from me
for I have written 'two and three every
week for I don't know how long. I
have not hieardl from you in some time.
I received a letter written bacK in
July, but don't. stop writing to zge for
yon donn: know how glad, I am to har
from you, mothe. Hve just ate sup
per and am feeling fine. We had some
rain last night but It is clear today.
We had some beans for supper we took
from the Germans apd .they sure went
fine. We are sleeping in a billet we
captured from the Germans.
I don't know whether this will pass
the censor or not, but I think it will.
I sure do want to hear from home; I
have not heard in quite awhile. Will
close as it is gettiig dark and I cannot
see. So goodbye.
As ever your son,,
Prvt. Harry Bolt Summey,
Co. D, 26th U. S. Infantry, A. E. F.,
via New York.
I will try and write you a few lines
to let you hear from me. I am getting
along all right at this writing and I
trust these few lines will find you all
well and enjoying life fine. I guess
you have probably heard of me being
hurt. I have not had the chance to
write to you for a good while. I wrote
you a card a few days ago. I have
been shipped about from one place to
another and have not had a chance to
write to you.
I was hit in the left shoulder by a
small piece of shrapnel on the 25th of
September while at the front, but the
wound is only slight and I will be ready
to go back to my company in a few
days.- I won't get my mail till I go
back to my company, but my address
is the same. Well, I have been away
from all the boys I know since the 25th
of September and will not hear from
them till I get back to the company.
I am now back in an English hospital
and get excellent treatment, but I
think I will be back in my company
before long as I can use my arm very
well now. I will close for this time
with good luck and best wishes to you
all. Answer soon. Bye bye.

Jeans Good Enough
For Sunday Clothes
Editor Pickens Sentinel:
Here comes an old veteran of 90 years
wishing to say something about jeans
cloth, as it seems to be the cloth of the
day. Just a little way from Clemson
College I dyed, spun and wove in time
of the Confederate war a piece of jeans
which was sent to the state fair in
Columbia, and it took first prize. I
gave Col. A. P. Calhoun a pair of pants
off the jeans. Hie had them made and
wore them for his best Sunday pants,
and I saw him with them on In time of
the Confeder ate war. The prize they
gave me was a silver berry spoon on
which Mrs. Calhoun had my initials en
graved and whliat iU wasi given me for.
I can't work now but I believe I could
rn the twill through a piece of jeans.
