Now that I can write more fully
what I bave been doing since I have
been over here I can perhaps make
a little more inter«- et. ng letter than
usual. We sailed from Hoboken on
July 18 on the George Washington, a
large liner that was formerly a Ger
man boat. She is quite a large
vessel, 725 feet long and has
remodeled into a transport and can
carry a large number of men. Our
ship was the flagship of the convoy
'which consisted of 13 transports, one -
pos-jerusier and three torpedo boat de
jstroyers. Nine days out we were met
by 13 more destroyers and on the
evening of July 30 we reached Brest
f ra nce.

to Fort Pontigan, an old stamping
ground of Napolean's. It i* surround

the niaia entrance is another email 1

store house set in the midst of 1
garden. This I presume is where old |
