wine (Ler-vum) and the bread here is great and cheap. 2 loaves for one Franc or 18 cents. The loaves are about 2 feet long by 4 inches through pointed at each end.

We had a train ride, and the cars are much different to the good old N.Y.C. The country through which we traveled was a great sight the trees are all in blossom and the gardens are all green. We have had two other camp besides this one. We are now on the bank of - river and I would like to go fishing as soon as possible. I have a great line of clothes hanging on a line near by and expect to take in dry in a very few minutes.

I was out on pass for five hours at the last camp. I had an awful time trying to talk to these Frenchment. They are good and willing to anything for a Yankee. I had supper while out for 2 F 50 or 56 cents. Soup about 1 lb bread a meat roll and gravey, beans baked lamb chops. Dandelion greens, cheese, jam, and 1 pt wine
