Give Us Your .Patronage Base hospital, 17 American Expedition Forces October 20. 1918. My 'dear loving mother and all the rest ot the folks at home: I know you will be anxious to hear from me, so one ot the Y. W. C. A, women has been kind enough to con sent to write for me. This is the beginning ot the 4th week and the doctor told me today that he thought I might be able to get up, possibly In four weeks more. My legs are improving wonderfully and are quite palntcl at times, bift the doctor says it is because they are getting better. I have complete use ot my right arm and getting bo that I have about halt the use ot the left one. My shoulder is getting very much better and I will soon be able to sit np. My left knee cap was blown away and I asked the doctor if my left leg would be stiff. He hummed a little bit and then said, "well a little." and then said, "but you'd rather have that than none x at all wouldn't you?" I told him "yes," because I was happy not to lose it entirely, and sure do hope that I do not. My right leg will get entirely well ana will be O. K. except possibly weak and will leave quite a scar. I am awfully anxious to hear from home but have not had a letter for nearly five weeks, as I know they are being stacked up somewhere and there Is some delay In forwarding them to me at the hospital. The nurse told me yesterday to have heart that she thought I'd be home by Christmas. I sure do hope this Is true, for I have a fear of the front line. I would be so nervous and scared that I'd be absolutely worthless. The shock from the ex plosion of the shell exploding 'so close sure made me arfully nervous, but the nurse says I'll outgrow that. No one can ever imagine how hor rible and how dreadful the modern warfare of today is. There are so many different things to combat, for example; the shell that wounded me was a double explosive shell, explod ing twice. It also contained gas. That one shell possibly cost five or six hundred dollars. After being wounded I still had presence of mind and with one good hand put on my gas mask, thus saving me from be ing gassed. I cannot tell you all the horrors but can jxplain them to you when I get home, and my greatest desire is that this war will cease. The weather has been .kind of chilly here but think It may brighten up later. Please do not worry over me, Instead Just send up a prayer to God, it will do me much more good and save you a whole lot. Be sure and write lots of letters. It Is get ting late now and I must close. Lots of love and a kiss to all. Brother. C. W Courtney, Base Hospital 17, A, P. O. 71, A. E. F. Mrs. II. F.
