April- 1918

My Dear Mother

Your letter received on the other side of the Atlantic.

I am not Somewheres in France and I am in the best of health and to my surprise I was not the least sick (sea). I hope you are enjoying good health. do not worry to much as it will only make you sick.

I guess the people to home will change their minds about us ^never^ leaving America.

Our trip was uneventful, we did not get any stormy weather. The first two days were bright and clear.

The next few days were overcast and misty, with some ^cold^ winds, which piled up mountains of water.

I was on the decks continuously from seven A.M. to 6 P.M. except for dinner hour.
