There is twelve of us here and about
thiree of them want to go home so bad
that the first thing they do when they

As:far as I can see we are a long way

now. I have not seen any of the home
boys over here yet. I guess Mason Cole
Is with this division yet, but I haven't
seen hIm1 since I left the S)tajes. If I
see any of the boys, will let you know
Say, I'm not sporting these French
girls much. I can't learn their way
of Jabbering. Think I've learned about
2 or 3 words In French. I don't know
if I have them exactly right or not.
You see I have to use signs when I'm
talking to these French people, some
thing similar to talking to a (leaf tl(d
dumlb person, so I have a .pretty slow
way of getting along inl France. At
one place over here, I went to get a
canteen of milk, an old man caie out.
I turned my canteen upl) to mny mot.li
as if I were drinking and pointed to a
cow in the yard. Thought sure he un
derstood, so he took my canteen, and
brings It back filled with wine. As the
wine was the same price as the milk
would have been, I took it, for it's no
telling -what he inigrt have brought
next time. Well I guess I will close
for this time, but will write again pret
ty soon. You write as often as you can.
'Take good care of yourself and don't
work too hard.

I hope you are well and enjoying
good health. 'I'm feeling all right. At

self and .two friends of mine. You car
give one to Coz. Fannie 'Brown, if she
wants It. She asked me to send .her
one when I had some made, but I'm
going to have some made of myself

you some of them. Tell Less and Rob
I got their letters a few days ago, and

very much this time. Write soon. I
