Letters From Solders. a
Since the war has ended and cen- c
sorsbip restrictions reduced to a s,
minimum the letters from the soldier
boys are more interesting. 1<
All tell the same story of fine
treatment the, Americans receive at s<
the hands of the French and Belgians. 11
There seems to have been a gener-;
al request for the boys to write a j c
Christmas letter to their father on; j;
November 24th. " i ' d

This is "Father's Christmas Vic- e

that to talk about when I get home.
I will tell von this much though: I c
found out on the way over what it
feels like to be in the vicinity of the
enemy, and learned what a periscope
looks like sticking out of the water.
We landed at Boest and went to a
"rest" camp for eight days.
We then boarded "side door pull- mans"
and journeyed to this place.
It took us days and three nights.
There is a detachment of Forestry;
Engineers and a detachment of col-!
ored laborers here besides our one!
battery of artillery. Believe me we
are some lumber jacks. we work
tea hours a. day. six days a week, and
scmetimes on Sunday we do guard or ,
Military Police duty.' Our captain
told us this morning that the sooner
the work was finished the sooner we
would reach home.
We are three kilometres (2 miles) !
font a village named Couloutre and
six kilometres (4 miles) from a small
town named Donzy, so can have little
enjoyment in the evening and on Sunday.

Dear Aunt Nellie: I
I received your letter of Oct. >
5rd yesterday. It was the first I had g
ecelved since in August. I am back to
iv own regiment again- The people r
t Belgium think we are angels ex- ^
ept the wings- They have great
Lrches orer the streets for us to
iardh under -with big signs on them
Honor Our Libeators", or other com- 1
liments to us. This is a. pretty
uuntry. The towns are clean and
le people have a good appearance. e
I am having a good time. I have _
ot seen James (his brother who ar- ~
Eved in New York the other day) nor [
ny of the other boys. Send me I
Clarence and Lloyd's addresses as j
oon as you receive it.
Much oblidge for the pictures I had .
>st all that I did hare.
How is everybody now? I was very 1
orry to hear that everybody was sick !
have a few boils.
I am glad tre war is over I hope to
ome home soon. I am in the Second
iivision that yo umaj' have beard of
urlng the last nine. months. The
"Tench people as' soon as they find
at what battles we have been in will
early go wild over us.
While I was at tre hospital the Red
Iross certainly treated xne fine. They
ave me all the tobacco and cigarttes
I could smoke. They also gave
le candy a few times. The Red Cross
> cue of the best organizations over
