On the niRht of July 5th we got divisional relief and marched back Mary. And on the 6th we received : grand and glorious surprise (a I t»al treat) -a BATH, yes, in the! river Marne. The first time I had 1 had my clothe* (any of 'em) off since the ttrst of our travels. Seems like there was no rest though cause that night we kicked all night to Charly Sur Marne. I'nderstand now. that we had left Belleau woods. They expected a drive so we had to WO rk day and night for 6 days and [digging trenches too. I wrote you a letter from there. Von Hlndenburg was there in 1913 ( > n Sunday night. July 14th, we »food rendy to go at any time. Note, k— kll., or 3 5 of a mile, Orders came later so we left on Monday, at 6 p. m.. without supper, Hiked 10 K. and the sun was hot. Got In trucks and rode all night and till the next day. We left the trucks some woods 14 K. behind the Tinei at Sola-ton». Had, not slept at 'all for two nights and had not eaten thing and hardly any water. The oods looked good to me. but we on D' *'ayed four hours and started on p. m. now The roads were block ed with traffic of all kinds from am t nltlon trains to cavalry, so we had to get along as best we could in the mud and rain and my such rain. We stopned at 9 p. m. Juat about sun down and had a liitle hard tack and that infernal canned meat and water. Then we hiked all night, stop ping only once. Darkness prevailed and we could see nothing but the flash of lights now and ihen by teamsters (to tell whether they were on the road or off.) We were tangled up with horses, mules and autos until it was discouraging to even try to walk. Alas, at day break, all worn out. we left our heavy packs and by that we knew what was going to happen. A few kil. further then we ditched Into the woods and occupied trenches only a few hundred yards in front of the Huns. Our artillery was sending over n ( terrific shell fire. I had a few swal a.lows of water but it only wet my Ups cause my clothes were wet through from sweat Just 10 minutes Unjrest then the old whistle blew and lOvpr the Top we went. Wc had no j-ando:» '*» - n achtn e guns.

There was no time to think of such things. It was fight und fight fast. For a long time no on;- was hurt I many (bueo) prisoner« coming back. Then five of us were detached to crass the road, get some informa ti ui and pick a machine gunner out of a trei We did latth Jeb« without any trouhh but wfujn wc came back we could not find our companies.
