Camp Humphreys, Va., Sept. 22.
Dear Mother and Dad:
I received both of your letters few
days ago and appreciated them very
much. I thought we would be in N.
J. by today, but we are still here, as
some of our clothing has not come
Dad, you think our engineering
work is pretty strenuous. So it is, at
times, but we arc getting accustomed
to it more each day, and it isn't hard
after all. We have a certain amount
of games, physical exercises, and of
drill along with the wor, which makes
it rather interesting. They are very
considerate with us here.
Of course we will have some dan?
gerous work to do "over there," but
most of it is done after night.
The infantry goes ahead of us,
and we back them up with fortifi?
cations. We have some of the real
fortifications here, trenches, tunnels,
dug-outs, etc. It seems as though ev?
ery means of protection is used.
You should see us put up bridges.
We can certainly put the macross.
Our company's first trial for a rec?
ord on a bridge was 215 minutes and
40 seconds. It doesn't sound rea?
sonable. I'm sure that a bridge 240
feet long, two trestles and eight boats
could be constructed in that time.
This bridge will carry any truck or
army equipment. We dismantled it
und put it on the bank in 15 minute:
We are going to bridge the Rhine!
I certainly think you should claim]
exemption for J im. I don't see how I

ran down our faces in streams. The

The following letter wos received
[by Mr. and Mrs. D. C. Low, of Cedar
Bluff from their son Grant Low, who
is a member of the Rainbow Division
in France:
With the American Expeditionary
Forces, France, August 1!), 1918.
My dearest mother and Dad:
We are now back for a rest and
you can res' assured we need it. We
have just gotten out of (he hottest
fight the Americans have had since
they have been over here and our
Division did wonderful work. Of
course we are veterans on this side
and have had quite p bit of experi?
ence is one reason the men did so
well. We have been cited twice by the
French armies and they all know the
?12nd or Rainbow.
We are in a wonderful rest camp.
In one of these typical French farm?
ing villages where nothing ever bap
pens and all is quiet. There is cer?
tainly some contrast between this
plnce and the ones we have been in
lately or for the past few weeks. We
have seen some of the brutal work ol
the Germans and one can never real?
ize what some parts cf France, bus
p suffered until they sec with their own
eyes some of the things we have had
an opportunity to see. But never
mind we'll (tie Americans) will make
them sorry they ever started anything
and I think they are beginning to
realize it.
Yes dad I have gotten the Card the
lodge sent me and I am very proud of
it. I will be glad when I can get back
and nttend lodge again but I want to
get back only when it's over?then we
can all got home together.
I just returned day before yester?
day from a twenty-four stay in Paris.
That is the greatest city I hrve ever
seen. I could tell you about it for
hours and then not tell you half of

Dear Papa:
Have just gotten a letter from
Manie, saying that you had gotten a
letter from us. The overseas mail
service must, bo taxed to death ami;
often I guess delays are unavoidable.'
Our letters reached you on schedule
time, however.
All the boys from home arc well.
Some of them are working n little
harder than they over did, but guess
it wont be any too hard on us. Haley
is working the drug department. Pat-!
ty is in charge of the laundry, while'
Home and myself are Working in
the quarter-master department. Wc
all like our work real well, espoc- !
ially Home and myself, as we get
out nearly every day on trucks bring-1
ine; in supplies.
As yon have seen from the papers]
we are located near Paris. 1 have
been in to the city so many times that i
1 feel most ns familiar with it as I '
do with our own backyard. I have ]
not been inside many of the interest?
ing places, however, as most of my 1
trips have been for supplies. Such
places as the F.iirel tower, Place do1
Concord, Arch de Triumph are fa?
miliar marks on our down town route.
We have the Abbey of St. Dennis
just outside of the city for our hos?
pital. It is an immense building,
well suited for our purpose. I think
it was built originally by Charlaman
gue, then rebuilt, by Napoleon and
given to the daughters of the Legion
of Honor for a school, so you can see
that it is a very historic spot.
We have bundled several hundred
wounded men up to the present and
they are now coming in pretty stead?
ily. We have had only one to the so
far. I cant see for the life of me
why more dent die the way some of
them are torn up. Some of them are
1 hit in a do/on places, and than come
I In asking for cigarettes. You novor
see one of them but what he is in fine
spirits. They all say they have the
'(lei man's goat and predict the wnr
! will soon lie over. If the people at
j home could only see what the boy*
j over here are doing they would buy
'liberty bonds faster tbun they could
I be printed, and would never turn the
I Bed Cross down. You can have no
I idea what they are doing for the men
over here with the Rod Cross.
Manic asked in her letter shout
the nurses. We have one bundled,
und all I have had anything to do
with are mighty nice. I have met
one who is a sister of a hoy I roomed
with at schol and of course we got.
to be friends at once.
I am glad to hear that you are all
through with the meadow. I am afraid
that you will find that your boys
have never been very much help to
you. When I get home you can mark
my place at the table ami I promise
to be on time for every moal.
It must have been a terrible storm
you hail to do so much damage. Horn
said that lightning must have been
the only thing that would have killed
George Asbury's mules as old age.l
hard work and starvation had no ef?
fect on them.
We are glad to hear John Dyke's
is getting on so well. Horn and I
have often wished wc could have
brought him with us, as we feared ho
would lind things pretty hard.
Tell Kvclyn wc enjoyed her letter
and tell Bill he must write us again.
Oivc my love to the family.
Your son, FRED.
