LETTER ROM FRANCE liss Ruby McLain, My Dear Ruby: It is with a sad heart that I at tempt to write you. I have written you several times and have not had an answer. I think you have for gotten me. Anyway, I hope not. I am on the firing line now and have been in two big drives already. We haven't lost very many of out men. I am proud of the fact that we have been victorious. In the first drive we captured thirteen thousand prisoners and in the second drive we captured twelve thousand prisoners. I guess if nothing serious happens to me I will be in several more drives before it is all over. You asked me how I liked the Old Country. Well, I hardly know wheth er I like it or not. In some ways it is line, but it rains so much over here and we have so much mud. We can't get around with our big guns as well as we could. I can hear one of the big guns tonight; the shells are flying all around me so that I can hardly vrite you. If they don't get me I will finish this letter anyway. You can imagine about how I look sitting on the ground writing with my tab let on my knee. It is very difficult to write a letter over here as every one has to be censored. You can write anything you like as they do not read yours. They only read the ones going out. This makes is so much easier for you. You asked if I ever saw Roy Kel ler. No, I haven't seen him for some time. 11, as I don't know anything else to write, will close. With very best wishes, I am, Sincerely CHARLES BROWN. Battery E. 115th Inft.
