SAM ADAMS, ESQUIRE, AN ABBEVILLE
BROTHER RALPH ABOUT
FORDS, PIGS AND COUNTRYWILL
COME BACK TELLS
July 19, 1918.
Well I am here and pretty glad to
get here or anywhere else. I didn't
get seasick and there was nothing ex
citing during the trip, but I was just
naturally glad to see land again. I
thought surely I would be sick all the
way, but outside a slight cold, I am
well and alright. We had a prety
good time, but one gets tired looking
at water all the time. I didn't realize,
though, how tired I was until
This is a pretty country, but I will
take the States for mine. The scenery
is finer than any I ever saw in the
States, although I never saw much of
it, and the soil is quite productive,
but itvdoes not suit me. It seems to
be a great country for grazing. I
don't remember seeing a bare spot
anywhere. Grass covers every inch
of the ground, but there is hardly
any trees. So few that you don't
see any wooden buildings. Every-1
thing is stone or brick. The fences i
are all mostly of stone and even the
pig pen? are made of stone. The
newer buildings or some of them, are
made of concrete; most everyhting"
is stone. They also have big, fine
horses and keep them in pretty good
shape. I imagine Uncle John Wilson
would like it here. I haven't seen
very many automobiles here and most
of them are Fords. Don't know
whether they have as many here as
we do in the States or not. I certainly
haven't seen very many. We
have them beat to death on railroads
and most everything else. They
have little box cars not as big as a
good-sized auto truck. They claim
they will carry eight ton3 but I
don't see how hey can get it on them
I am sure you could not put a bale of
seed cotton in one of them. They
have only four whels to the car and
no air brakes. They couple with a
chain on hooks. It is a comical looking
sight to see a string of them behind
a little engine about as big as
the Due West and Donalds engine.
The cigarettes here are bad. Have
tried four or five different kinds and
very kinds is worse than the other.
Think I will quit if 1 don't find some
better ones. Have lots of Piedmonts,
in my barrack bag though, and guess
I will be fixed alright when I get it.
Will ?rof if. in a rtav or. so. I CUG2S.
I didn't lose anything on my trip
except my raincoat and have found it
now. A fellow took it in place cf his
and I just took his. Mine was a
whole lot the best coat, but I had
my name in it and he hunted me up
and traded back. I was glad he was
the one that got it f6r lots of them
would never have said anything about
Bob Cheatham and I tried to cable
but could not. Guess, you have
cards though by this time telling
you of our arrival. I saw Shuler the
other day on the boat. It was the
first and only time I have seen him. |
Well, I know lots to write but do
not know whether I can write it or
not. Will write a longer letter when
I have the censor's rules.
I am well and alright and will be
back some time. Will try to write
the others in a few days, Aunt Ada,
etc. Guess all of you are well and
alright. Write me when you can. j
With love to all of you.

MRS. P. B. SPEED RECEIVES
AN INTERESTING LETTER
FROM A FRENCH LADY
Lieutenant Preston B. Speed, Her
Son, is the Cause and Subject of
M. Jeanne Brouttier,
Villa de la Marniere, Zouafques,
Par la Recousse,
July 6, 1918.
Dear Mrs. Speed:
We are in our Summer house at
Zouafques, where we had the great
satisfaction of making the acquaintance
of your dear son, Mr. Preston.
He was billetted at homo during a
month, we wfcre in very friendly intercourse
with him. We tried our
best to make him at home and spent
the evenings in family playing at
cards or tiddly winks. We kept of
him the best remembrance. They <
left a few days ago for another destination.
He hoped to come backin
a fortnight. ' ]
We very often go to Calais, where i
we have our winter house. Since a <
month the boches planes could not 1
make damages in Calais for the 1
Americans planes prevented them i
from coming over the town.
We welcome very much the American
soldiers who come to fight with
us and help us, for we suffer since
four years with this awful war and '
it is really too long.
I hope that this letter will reach ,
you safely and if you get it I should
be very pleased if you answered it
Mr. Preston showed us the article .
of the American paper that you
sent him, in which his biography.
We congratulate him for that.
I promised Mr. Preston to write
to you and I kept my promise. <
Awaiting* the pleasure of hearing ]
from you, I beg of you dear Madam, (
to accept our very kind regards. i
Sincerely, I ]
M. Jeanne Brouttier. <
| Next time you write your son, tell
| him please, I wrote to you.
