always kept so bus)' that I hardly !
could write a single letter a week.
The voyage across the big pond was
all very fine, nothing unusual occur

I met Harry Spltzer here. He came
over at the same time, but on a differ

of German prisoners In the camp here,

peacefully. We are not allowed to
talk to them, and they pay very little
attention to us, either. The country

mountains, and forest country, with

We had an Inspection by the com
mander In chief of the French army.
He was well pleased with our appear
ance, and belteve me, he had a fine
looking staff with him.
Just now we are getting plenty of
exercise, so I feel great, and as am
happy as ever. If my heart dont
defceive me, then I guess we will be
back in the II. S. A. before Easter Is
due. I feel that way, but there la no
reason for It.
Every evening here we have a con
cert. That is the time I think of the
dances and good times I used to have,
but I hope, that before long, we will
enjoy them agatn. As I cannot write
anything abont military happenings, I
will close my letter, waiting for an
answer from your.
