"Kindly remember me to any of my
friends yon may see and tell them all
to arrange to come to France, If possible,
because the more Americans
there are in France the stronger oar
forces become and tbe sooner tne war
will end with a victory for the Allies."
writes Sergeant Major Frank C. Haymond
to U- H. Dun lap, of this city.
His letter in part follows: "1 am
sorry not to have been able to write
yon sooner as I had intended to do.
bnt in the A. E. F. one's time is not always
one's own and the opportunities
for writing letters are not the same as
those presented to people to Fairmont.
"I see occasionally, by some newspaper
clippings, that some Fairmontera
in France have been writing letters
containing a good bit of detailed
information about the war. This is all
right and perhaps permitted to persons
who are not actually in the army
but all sodiers in the American Expeditionary
Forces are prohibited from
writing any definite military information.
I would like very much to write
you a long letter and give you some
interesting facts but a soldier's first
and most important duty is obedience
to orders. Consequently, such news
as I possess will have to wait for another
and more favorable time and
"While I can not give you. as I have
said, any detailed or definite information.
I am permitted to write that I
have beo i for some time in the rone
of the advance. You. of course, know
of the recent splendid achievement 01
American arms in the Chateau-Thierry
region. The Kaiser and his Huns
richly deserve a long delayed thrashing
and before long, in my opinion,
they will receive their just dues.
"The section of the country in which
I am located now. in many respects, resembles
parts of West Virginia. The
climate here Is moderate and not subject
to sudden change. In the summer
months the temperature is not
nearly as warm as it is in Fairmont
during the same season. This section
is also interesting from an historical
point of view. There are ma replaces
near here whose history extends
back into the middle ages and
even to the days f the Romans. Then,
too. we must not forget that a greater
and grander history is daily being
made in the immediate vicinity.
"I like and am much impressed with
the French people with whom I have
come in contact. One can not but adBell-ans

! mire their courage, patience ana
dauntless spirit. All the -world knows
bow France has suffered, but no one
would learn of it from the French
themselves. Even during the days of
the early German offensives the
French never showed the least discouragement
or excitement, their attitude
at all times is that of confidence
and assurance. The American soldiers
are well liked by the French who
express admiration for the conduct of
our troops in battle.
"I will be glad to write you about
the Red Cross in another letter. At
the present time I have only a few
