March 21 1918

My Dear Mother

Just a few lines, while I have time to let you know I am well and feeling fine. We are still in Fort Hamilton but very unsettled.

An officer told us we were to leave last Wednesday, but so many people knew about it, and the grounds were so full of people they changed the departure.

They have us a nice hike to day down to 69th st shore road, then “equadis left” right on the dock beside a large Ditch steamer, I thought sure it was “ago” We stayed there for a short time then came back to the fort again.

All afternoon we have tent pitching and exercising
