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.
