Somewhere in France,
Nov. 29, 1918.
Dear 'ncle and Aunt:
I will try and do(0) you all a few
lines to let you all hear from me.
This leaves m in the hospital. I was
gassed on the 18th of October and I
have been here ever since. I was gass- i
ed Ill my eyes, an( breast. and was
burnt in several places. My eyes are
so weak how that I can't hardly, see,
-'Iut tiruly hope these few lines will
reach and find you all well, and en
joying .the best of health. I sure
wish I was over there. today,, but may
be it -won't be long now before I can
be back again. I guess you all can see
how everything is by the papers. I
can't see to read a paper. I don't be
lieve r will ever see as good as I once
did, But I hope so. I guess you all
had turkey for dinner today, for it's
Thanksgiving. We had pork, roast,
c'4l'hage and turnips. Jt wasn't so bad.
T have a lot to tell yotu all, hult I can't
DutI it in here so I 'will have to wait
until I come home.
Ilow is Grandmother? Tell .her I
'n id h1llo, and 'I think T will get to see
h-r l-fore long. Also I will write
hvr a letter i a ,few. days ir my eyes
I I't 6y w1rse. I was ":tone
' Und" for ovor 1wo, wveeks, so y-ou mlay
1-''w w'.hat kind o a filx I have been
h1, but don't worryv about me. I think
f will get along all right now.
T haven't received a letteor ftromi any
one in two months. The last one T re
eclved was from Mamie Helle. Well,
as I van't tihink of anything to write,
T guess I had better close, for I know
yor are tired of trying to read this
letter, but you will have to excuse It
for I am so near blind. I wIll say
good-bye. Give iy love to all,
