Somewhere in France: I am writing
this letter to you to let you know
know I am getting along. I am getting
along just as fine as ever and wish
to hear from you people whom I left
behind. I am wondering how you
people are getting along now. I am
doing fine and I will cheer myself up
and enjoy my self what ever I do.
I haven't felt homesick since I have
been in the army, it seems as though
I have a real home, but one thing
that we do is travel from one place to
another, but we are near the place
where we will settle down until the
scrapping is over. I would be very
glad to see all of you again. I am
not in a hurry to come back to my
good home in the U. S. A. as there
is lots of time coming and I am com
ing home to meet you again. I know
how you people feel about we boys
being in the warj We have got to do
something to help our dear old Uncle
Sam to make the people free from
fighting, and you won't miss me, I
am here to help to make peace for
the people here and in all the world.
You all know how it is and you wished
the war would come to an end. We
are here to do what we can. I have
seen many different countries and I
am sure proud to have seen these dif
ferent places "and I thank the good
U; S. A. to ship me around where I
can see all the different lands. You
will always hear from me so be sure
and write a long letter to) me and tell
me all the news that you can find.
And give my regards to I. M. George
and family and Ed. They wish to
know about me but I have never writ
ten to them. And also tell all the
others that I arrived across here safe
and wish to hear from them. Have
you some of the Indian boys butcher
ing for yet yet? How is Ben Kay-
ser getting along, and the poor old
man and woman? You know who I
mean, and how is the weather down
there? This place is a very cold
country. It has rained ever since
we arrived. Well this will be enough
for you today and be sure and ans
wer to me most any time when you
like to write. Don't bq in a hurry in
writing. Good-bye, as ever your

The letter bore the date of July
1st and had been a good deal longer
in transit than usual. Miss Teale by
her ingenious letter writing is able
to have her letters come through un

great deal to the folks at home about
the country in which she is laboring,
although should any one of these let

be able to tell nothing by its contents.
