Dear Father: It has been several days since I received you letter but have not had time to answer, owing to the fact that we have been out here on the range since Monday and perhaps will be here cn days more. We have about 450 or 500 rouitas each to fire and fire forty roun Is a day. This being the Fourth, we all hive a holiday on the range but could not do anything as we are about ten miles out of camp There was a great day back there with the boys .i.'h letic meets of all kinds, but it was too hot for us to hike it both ways in one day after hiking out Monday. So myself and five other boys thot we would go over on the river (Leaf river.) which is about three miles from here, so we got our bathing suits together and went over and did swim. The water was as fine as I ever saw and was somewhat over my head; I tried in one place by letting down but never hit bottom and had to come up. 1 intended to name the the boys but forgot it, will do so now "Shorty" Berrynian, "Dusty" Hanks. Bland Garrett, "Post" Baker and a new man from Illinois, I don't re member his name. After the swim, we thought we would start back to camp and start we did Von per haps, have some idea of what these Mississippi forests and swamps are like; we got lost and wandered where there was never a man before We met hogs, alligators, big snakes, old sows and pigs by the drove. We walked and wandered until about ":.I0 when we came out to the edge of the forest and went up to a little farm house which set in one corner of a four acre cotton field, to where a man was plowing cotton when we stopped at the end of the row he was plowing; he was about middle ways of the field; he drove out and stop ped; we began to question him so as to get some clew on the direction of range "A;" he directed us the best he could. He was a man about :io or M, somewhere in that range ;we began to talk about several different things; he was telling us about his crop; his father owns five hundred acres of land and he owns two hun dred acres. His land is a good dis tance from his home; he batches a week at a time or long enough to cultivate his crop and goes back home and works another week. So the conversation began to quiet down and it was getting late, we had to hit the trail once more to camp, and this being a National holiday, and he was out plowing cotton, he did not want us to think hard of him for working. But he did not mention this to us. He said this "My father and mother are old and the boy has gone to the war and I am left to take care of them and two crops." My very blood ran cold in my veins when he said that I have just pictured his par ents old and back home doing their best, one boy in the army, the other one doing all that is in him to keep the old mill grinding I thot it was the best expression I ever heard. I can't keep from thinking about htm. And another thing, one of the boys just called my attention to it; during our entire day's rambling there was not a profane word used and we were having some tough luck: quite a re cord for six boys and them being soldiers. We landed saiely in camp about dark and the mess Sergt. was good enough to give us some supper. As you know, you can't eat in the army like you can at home just any time you blow in here you arc just on the spot. Well 1 have my rille to put into condition to night for tomorrow and will have to quit with a shorter letter than 1 would like to write. I am go ing to write Mr. Will Dc Haven to night and will answer Coots' and the other girls' letters this week. I have l I fairly good record on the range so far I am standing in the class as ex pert rifleman with 2V9 out of a possi ble 350 nr a percentage of ; this being both sharp-shooter and marks man, hut if I only make sharp-shooter 1 will be satisfied. Have you threshed wheat yet? How is every one now? Was glad to hear Doc was out again. 1 am always shot to pieces thinking about mother. I did not want to leave home on that account Will close with a good night and pedittonary Force love to all. William. P. S. Write me at the same old ad dress. In Medical Reserve. Dr. Irwin Taylor, son of Mr. Al fred Taylor, of Hardinsburg, and a I'.ns graduate of the Louisville Medi cal University, is in Philadelphia serving one year's interneship in the Municipal Hospital. Dr Taylor en listed in the Medical Reserve Corps last December and he was allowed a furlough of a year and ahalf to finish his course in school and to serve his interneship in the U. S. A more definite conception of the kind of military training in hospital work which he is receiving, can be as certained in his letter published here with. In writing to his sister he said: "I suppose you are all wondering how I am getting along by now. Well, I have a nice big room all to myself and it is furnished with the best of furniture and a bath adjoining. The food is fine. We have had chicken four times since 1 have been here and every meal has been good. The people are nice and treat me fine and 1 don't have very much to do out here; would like to have more work; only work about three or four hours during the day. We have breakfast at 9 o'clock and you know 1 like that. I haven't been up town for a week; have only been out once since I have been here and that was to the park and I heard Victor Hubert's Orches tra. It was fine. There is an areoplane carrying mail which passes over us every day about 11 p. Mh al11' naturally I watch it. I have about M children sick with Scarlet fever and have to go aiouu'l and see them once each day. Most all of them are well but are required to stay in the hospital for seven weeks, sick or well. It is rather cool here now and has been all but one day since I have been here. Write to mm when you can. A let tei is alwas s i" demand. Lovingly, your brother, Irwin. Announcement.
