The Sentinel learns from some of
the Grenada boys who are in Camp
Johnson, near Jacksonville, Florida,
that Miss Grace Hallam has been at
Jacksonville for a number of days

no more poputer sin B er has visited

Among the real estate changes in
this vicinity of recent date was the
purchase by Mr. C. M. Clark from
Mr. David A. Williams of the esidence
formerly occupied by the latter in

have been some interesting farm

Grenada Gounty Soldier Sends greet
ings to Homefolks and Wants
To Get Back Home as Eariy
As Possible.
Dear Mother and homefolks:
It has been quite a while since I
received my first letter from you. I
believe it was on the 22nd day of
Sept, and I have gotten several since
then, but I have not had a chance to
write to you until now. This leaves
getting along as well as can be ex
pected, considering everything I
guess.
In regard to my being wounded I
was only slightly gassed in my eyes
and throat and did not stay in the
hospital but a few days, so I did not
mention it to you in my letters. I
also received letters from Ed and
Quinn and was surely glad to hear
from you all.
Tell them to do as they think best
with my horse. If they want to sell
him it will be O K with me.
I'm glad to hear that every body is
enjoying good health and hope this
will find all well at home when it
gets there. I know one of those ap
ples you spoke of selling, would taste
good to me, but they are too far awa^
for me to bite. But I'm trusting
and praying that our heavenly fa
ther will bring-me back to you ant
the dear "old U. S. A." again soon.
I also received a letter from Lena
Evelyn, Grace and Mary. Tell the
rest that I will write to them when I
get a chance. Write me often and
tell me all the news around home.
With lots of love and best wishes
for all, I am as ever,
