France, , Pear Mother and Father: Am just back from another trip. this being my second stay in Paris I certainly found a big difference, as all the-sand bags had been removed from all of the big mounments and stations. On this trip I saw the stat ue of Joan of Arc, the gallows where the Prime Minister of France was hung for conspiracy. I also saw th church where the German super gun killed so. many jeople; and best of all I was one of the lucky ones to see the supreme court of France while in session. I also saw a large collec tion of German cannons and othei implements of warfare. Of course these were not new to me. During the time that I was in Par is, I dropped up to Rheims, where I saw the, largest cathedral in the world which has been smashed to the ground in ruins. On my return to camp I stopped at Bloie, where the next largest cathe dral is now being the largest, a5 the one at Reims now lies in ruins. I spent Christmas in my favorite town, Verigon, which is located neai Tours on the Cher river, with a pop ulation of 80,000. You spoke of some souvenirs.
