S. j Section Postale | July 28; 1918. Dear Kate— ' . War has come our way since- I wrote you last. We have been in the big battle. I was down with Trench Fever and evacuated to the rear be fore the big light started in good, but as ever fortunate, I was back into it before it was over, in fact it is still moving on. The hills potted with the ghastly mine holes are sure a wonderful sight, but you cannot imagine how it was to walk through when the pots were being made. It is a great feeling to be lifted off your feet by an explosion and set down on the opposite side of the i road only to be carried back the same way. In the papers you always read, j ‘before the bombardment,’ —‘after the 1 bombardment,’ —but remember that in between is the word always missing, | but tc those w-ho have stood by and ! walked through it, unlorgetible is the ] one dreadful word ‘BOMBARDMENT.’ Don’t lose it. I’ll tell you what it 1 means some day to count seconds be tween shell bursts and to see how many men can run through the barrage before the next one comes. Can you imagine rolling a body over so that the boys behind won’t step on the poor fellow, or to have a fellow sitting with his back to a trench getting a 155, (about a six inch) shell right in his lap. All we found was his helmet about 1000 yards away. * Kate, America is at war and Foxie’s in it deep, but I hear the roll is called and I don’t answer, or until I can come back and have an evening of it. Enclosed find one of me. In it down deep in a shell hole thirty feet across by ten feet deep, you may not recog nize me, but I’m there. Those are the boys that thunder before they growl and leave this hole, See the bobbed wive shattered and rolled away—the trench and bulwarks in the back ground. It’s not much of me. I have a camera, but films end the after Work are hard to get; so don’t expect many. Remember me to all Kate, Al. ’and Bill as well ! as your Dad tjid all the other fonts. I have a picture of Gladys and . the baby sent by via nurse Wegge. She is where I will find her at my earliest Con-: venience. . . My leave is due now. Some happy reunion of the old U. S. A. Type when we meet, even If I am hroke. Good-bye, Kate, for this time. I am short on paper and envelopes sh don’t expect many letters, however, I am long on thoughts some tifnes.
