Wp W g frnm Khaki ßoVS 1TUIU IVUdKI OOyS M rs. g g Browne, of Moscow, has rece i ve( j the following letter from her son> H c (Jack) Brownei who is now j n France. His letter follows: IN FRANCE, Sept. 5.—Dear Moth er; It has been raining all day and we are in our little "pup'' tents try ing to keep dry. While I have some time will answer yours of July 10, it came about ten days ago, but as we have made a four days' move since I received it, I have had no chance to write before. We are now situated in a beautiful section of France, in the hills. This place is far superior to anything I have seen elsewhere in France. Be fore the war, it was a summer resort. There is hot sulphur springs here, and I had a chance to take a bath, as it was pumped from the ground, and believe me, I had to add cold water. It was the first time I ever took a bath in a marble bath tub. The streets here are wide and clean, the buildings larger and more modern than most of the towns I have been in. The people too, are seemingly of a higher type than those of the low lands. Jimmie Henry and I have made friends with a little French girl eleven years old, and she has promised to teach us French. She understands English quite well and can speak it much better than I can French. Her name is Cecilia Baption. Last night she sang Tipperary for us, first in English and then in French. After she had exhausted her patience try ing to teach us some of this lingo, she told us it was time for ladies to "departay," so we took her home. You would be surprised at the way these French kids pick up our language, To have some of the Yanks "parley" French you would think, they were "native sons" but of course they in troduce a lot of their own stuff with it. I was talking with a French pro fessor who said that the American soldier was spoiling the French' people in the way of language, as they were taking up our way of saying things or in other words our slang. Yes I got to take my trip to Scotland at last, and believe me, I'll never regret it. I went to London, Inverness, Dun dee, and Edenburg. I only wish I SS® could have had a week in each place. ü I had a letter from Aunt Helen and she was asking about my wounds. Who could have started the story that I had lost a leg? Mother, please them right. I have never been hurt since January, and my foot is giving me some trouble, but is getting stronger and will soon be all right. I certainly was surprised that Mr. Collins had applied for overseas serv ice in the Y. M. C. A., but believe me, he will make good, and he is the kind of a man that will take with the boys. And I sure would love to see him. Tell I. L. I'll write him as soon as I catch up. Perhaps it would interest you know that Jimmie Henry is still with me. In fact, we sleep in the same tent, and are together all the time. Ernie has gone to an officers' train ing camp. The old bunch of 110 that left Spokane a year ago in July have dwindled to 23. There are only four of the Pullman boys here now. They are: Wenham, Henry, Pratt and my self. I hope you have been well this please take care of your summer, self, and if any of my friends ask about me, tell them I am feeling fine, but have little time to write. When I get back I'll have lots tell you but it is an utter impossibility to write now. Lovingly, your son, Private H. C. Browne (Jack.) Hdq. Troup 6th Army Corps A. P. O. 783 American E. F., France. Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Markhus of the University are in receipt of the follow ing letter from Martin Clausen, with the American troops in France. The letter is very interesting and inspiring. The writer being a naturalized citizen showing true patriotism. His letter fol lows ; "With the American E. F., France. "Dear Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Markhus; "As T sit here on a Sunday evening in a strange country on the waring conti nent enjoying an hour of leisure, the thoughts wander hack to the happy days at Spokane college, when I was sitting in the class-room listening to Mrs. Markhus's most emphatic reminding re marks to the poor sinner who failed to hand in his English theme on time or learn his poem before entering the class room : or they go back to a lively dis cussion of some subject of political or philosophical nature, enjoyed by Mr. Markhus and myself in such conspicuous places as the kitchen or—pantry; or they go back to the times when the late even ing hours floated gently into the early hours of morning while I was placing the finishing touch on the last sentence of a theme or an essay, or sometimes a speech, while at times the last penstroke was glorified by the rays of the morning sun. Yes, those days were days the youthful ideas and ideals were moulded into the lofty aspirations of manhood character. Those were days of battles and victories, days of small accomplish ments, which laid the foundation for the greater ones of later life. It was on the threshold from youth to manhood. Those were the days when I fixed the goals I was to pursue in later life. The days of patient and faithful pursue followed. "But now the thoughts come back to the present. Where are the goals that were so clearly in sight? Have they vanished? No, only a mist have made* them invisible. That mist is the war. I am satisfied to have sacrificed my aims for being in this war. Duty comes first. I am proud because I have the opportunity to fight for one of the greatest, if not the greatest, causes ever fought for. "Suppose you think it queer that I, who came from Norway about five years ago and so radically holding on to my Norwegian citizenship, should go in and fight for the United States? "Well, I could have accepted it, as some did, because upon receiving my questionnaire, I did not possess my in tention-paper ; but I felt that the United States was right and that the cause and principles of this war were well worth fighting for, and freedom-loving as 1 was and am« I found it my personal duty to enter the army. I came to the United States merely for educational purposes, but as I studied its history 1 learned to love it, and as a zeal on my love I am now willing to give my life for the cause the United States is fight ing for, and do not think that I shall ever regret my action. "As to the army life, it has its odds and ends as any other life ; but as United States soldiers, with the freedom-loving principles of our country, the odds and ends of army life are mere trifles to the successful victory we alwaÿs keep in view. "By the way, this is some autobiog raphy I have written ; but I hope you will excuse it, as I do not think it will overshadow that of Franklin or the 'other great men.' But looking away from my egotistic self, I wonder how you, Mr. and Mrs. Markhus, are.
